#Ap | A Bahraini man gestures from behind a car in #Barbar, #Bahrain, on Friday, #Nov9, 2012, that residents said was damaged when it was hit by tear gas canisters fired by riot police. Police used tear gas in several villages to prevent residents from leaving to participate in midday prayers in the northern village of #Diraz. Shiite clerics nationwide had called for worshipers to pray in Diraz on Friday where top Shiite cleric Sheik Issa Qassim preaches in a show of support for him at a time of concern among Shiites that he may be arrested as part of a government crackdown on the opposition.
