HAMAD TOWN, Bahrain - Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims clashed in a town in Bahrain on Thursday, the first direct confrontation between the two sides since large scale protests erupted in the kingdom's main city two weeks ago.

Residents said a group of Shi'ites fought with a group of Sunnis and what they said were Bahrainis of Syrian extraction.

"There were about a hundred people involved," one resident said.

Police helicopters circled overhead and two ambulances rushed from the scene. Youth with sticks and batons were also leaving the area.
