Despite Protests: Bahrain Hosts F1 Race
Bahrain hosted the recent F1 racing tournament despite the fact that there was a lot of tension and protests. There were sporadic clashes between the pro-democracy activists and the police.

Securing The Circuit
The race circuit was securely covered with armored vehicles and policemen who stood in strategic places to ensure that the event was a success. There were accusations that the F1 racing championship in Bahrain was being used by the government to paper the human rights violations. The Crown Prince dismissed this allegations but instead thanked the over 15,000 people who had thronged the circuit to witness this land marking event. He stated that Sunday being the apex of the F1 racing championship more people were being expected at the circuit and the Bahrain government was prepared to provide the necessary security to ensure that the event took place as scheduled.

According to the prince the event was most likely to transcend the differences that exist between the government and the opposition. Though the early clashes had recorded some injuries, the activists announced that they would do everything to facilitate the F1 racing championship without compromising on their demands.
