Mideast Bahrain

Bahraini anti-government protesters raise signs with images of jailed human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja Friday, April 6, 2012, in Jidhafs, Bahrain, on the outskirts of the capital of Manama, during one of two simultaneous mass demonstrations supporting the imprisoned hunger-striker. Some thousands of protesters in Bahrain chanted slogans Friday in support of al-Khawaja, whose nearly two-month hunger strike has become a powerful rallying point for the tiny nation's Shiite-led uprising against the Sunni monarchy.
