The controversial Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix went ahead on Sunday, April 22, despite persistent anti-government protests. There was heavy security ahead of the event as anti-government activists set tyres on fire in an attempt to block roads to the race track, and more protests are expected into Sunday night.
