MANAMA, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Thousands of Bahrainis held a peaceful anti-government protest in a suburb of the capital on Friday, demanding the release of political prisoners and political reforms in the troubled Gulf Arab state.

The march, in a district populated by the Shi'ite majority who have dominated protests over the past year, was organised by opposition parties and approved by police.

"Yes to democracy, no to dictatorship" and "We won't forget you, prisoners" were some of the slogans, while the protest leader chanted "No backdown, no concessions". A helicopter observed the march from overhead and police restricted access to the area.
