Bahrain cleric: Protests to continue despite force

Sheik Isa Qassim says Bahrain's majority will continue demanding rights and dignity despite the rulers' resolve to crush the monthlong uprising in the Gulf state, the home of the US Navy's 5th Fleet.

Thousands attended the service despite a ban on public gatherings. Security was tight, with police and army deployed around the island. Helicopters and two fighter jets circled above.
