An anti-government protester is helped by fellow demonstrators after she was pepper-sprayed by riot police during a rally in Manama, Bahrain, in support of imprisoned human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja's hunger strike. Al-Khawaja is serving a life sentence for his role in the anti-government unrest that continues to embroil Bahrain. Sunday marked the 60th day of his hunger strike. (Reuters)
