DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Thousands of mourners in Bahrain on Tuesday took part in a funeral procession for a man killed in the first Egypt-inspired protests to reach the Gulf.

Riot police initially used tear gas to try to block the funeral cortege for 21-year-old Ali Abdulhadi Mushaima, but then fell back and allowed it to proceed from a hospital in Bahrain's capital Manama.

Mushaima was killed during clashes with security forces Monday trying to halt marches to demand greater freedoms and political rights from the ruling monarchy in Bahrain — a strategic Western ally and home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet.

At least 25 people were treated for injuries.

The unrest coincided with major anti-government protests in Iran and Yemen.
