Hussein, head of the Shiite Wafa Islamic Movement, during a rally marking his
temporary release from prison in the village of Nuwaidrat, south of Manama, on Sunday. Hussein, who was released briefly for his mother's funeral, was to

serving a life sentence with six other opposition leaders and activists after
being convicted of plotting to overthrow the monarchy. (MOHAMMED AL-SHAIKH/AFP/Getty Images)
