Hundreds of pro-government supporters, waving flags and pictures of the king, streamed through the streets of Bahrain's capital on Friday, footage from local TV showed.

Television stations showed men, women and children, wearing mostly traditional dress, walking slowly through the capital. Many carried pictures of King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa.

Thousands of Shi'ites in Bahrain turned out to bury their dead on Friday after four protesters were killed on Thursday when riot police drove activists from a makeshift camp in Pearl Square in the capital.

More than 230 were wounded and dozens were detained.
