In this Monday, May 28, 2012 photo, Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab leaves a Manama, Bahrain, police station after being released on bail for charges linked to pro-democracy protests in the Gulf kingdom. Rajab has been found guilty of calling and participating in several illegal gatherings and sentenced to three years in jail. The unexpectedly stiff sentence Thursday against Rajab will raise questions about the Western-backed Sunni monarchy's commitment to reform. (AP Photo/Hasan Jamali) less
