A Bahraini anti-government protester wearing a national flag watches for riot police as tires burn on a street in the western village of Malkiya, Bahrain, on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2013. Inspired by the movement behind Egypt's military coup, pro-democracy activists in Bahrain are hoping to gain new momentum by calling for nationwide protests Wednesday. Authorities warned they will "forcefully confront" any large demonstrations, raising fears of more violence in the strategic Gulf kingdom.
