Riot police chase anti-government protesters, unseen, in Sanabis, Bahrain, on the edge of the capital of Manama on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012, as protesters' attempts were thwarted to head toward an area nearby they call "Martyrs Square" that had served as the main hub for last spring's pro-democracy uprising. Writing on the garage door reads: "We will return to Martyrs Square 12-13-14-15 February." Bahrain on Sunday deployed thousands of security forces to confront anti-government protesters ahead of the one-year anniversary of the start of the Shiite-led uprising that seeks to loosen the ruling Sunni dynasty's monopoly on power.
