The Bahrain Tribune reported on the clashes.

An anti-riot police car was set on fire and the car of the General Director of Traffic was slightly damaged when clashes erupted in the wake of Ali Jassim Al Barbari who died while taking part in a protest on Monday in Sanabis.

Hundreds of protesters hurled Molotov cocktails and stones at anti-riot police after unconfirmed news spread that an undercover police unit was involved in an accident in which a protester was injured shortly after the wake ended in Jid Hafs.

The procession was led by the head of the opposition Al Wefaq parliamentary block, Shaikh Ali Salman, and head of Haaq (Justice) Movement, Hasan Mushima among others from Jid Hafs religious centre to the nearby burial ground where Ali Jassim Al Barbari was buried.
