Thousands of  Bahraini Shiites take to the streets in Janosan Village, in the western suburb of Manama, on May 18, 2012 to demonstrate against a proposal to unite the Sunni-ruled kingdom with neighbouring Saudi Arabia. Protesters chanted "No to union. Bahrain is not for sale" as they marched along a main road linking a number of Shiite villages around the capital.
