Mideast Bahrain

  Riot police watch anti-government demonstrators returning to the streets from a watch tower scarred by previous petrol bomb attacks in the western village of Karzakan, Bahrain, after dispersing a protest Monday, May 14, 2012, calling for freedom for political prisoners and chanting against tightening Saudi-Bahrain ties. Gulf Arab leaders have stood together over the last year to fend off political opposition inspired by the Arab Spring as well as the ambitions of their rival, Iran. The region's envoys met Monday to discuss whether to carry that unity to the next level with proposals that foresee a super-state stretching from Kuwait to Oman. (AP Photo/Hasan Jamali)
