Well-wishers and male relatives of Bahrainis rounded up in a crackdown on Shiite Muslim activists gather for a sit-in in a private home in the village of Nuweidrat, Bahrain, on Tuesday. More than 250 Shiites have been detained since last month, and 23 political activists and others have been accused of plotting to overthrow the government.
