MANAMA - Bahraini opposition activists are planning to hold a day of demonstrations throughout the tiny island country on Friday, in defiance of a ban on all public gatherings under martial law declared last week.

It was not clear which groups were behind the marches, plans of which were circulated by email and Internet.

They did not appear to involve the mainstream Shi'ite Muslim opposition group Wefaq, nor the Feb. 14 Youth Movement which led protests at Pearl roundabout that were dispersed by riot police a week ago.

Western countries appeared to be taking the plans seriously.
