Bahrain prepares for elections despite boycott call
The people of Bahrain go to the polls on 22 November in the first general election since the Arab Spring protests of 2011.
Tension has been high in the months leading up to the elections, as the Sunni-led government continues to clamp down on political dissent.
The main Shia opposition group - al-Wefaq - and four other opposition organisations called for an election boycott in support of their demands for reforms.
