A RIOTER PUTS A TYRE ONTO A FIRE IN MANAMA.
A rioter puts a tyre on a fire as others keep watch for riot police
during an anti-war demonstration near the British Embassy in Manama
March 22, 2003. Hundreds of angry rioters protested near the British
Embassy. Thousands of Arabs seething with anger about a heavy U.S.-led
bombing of Baghdad protested for a third day on Saturday, amid concern
the demonstrations could threaten stability in the volatile region.
With live footage of the fiery explosions and burning buildings in Iraq
beamed into most Arab homes, feelings are running high over what many
consider a sinister ploy to dominate the Arab world. In Bahrain, which
hosts the U.S. Fifth Fleet, protests also continued, and the U.S.
embassy stayed closed a day after hundreds scuffled with police outside
the fortified building. REUTERS/Hamad I Mohammed
