A policeman clears away smoldering tires set ablaze as a form of protest by Bahraini government opponents across a street in Karzakan, Bahrain, on Thursday, May 16, 2013. A Bahraini demonstrator was sentenced to three months in prison Thursday for hanging a Bahraini flag from his truck during a 2011 rally, a defense lawyer said, in one of the first cases based on tougher codes for alleged insults to the Gulf nation's ruler or symbols.
