Supporters of the Shiite opposition Al-Wefaq are silhouetted behind a banner, center, calling for the freedom of jailed opposition figures Hassan Mushaima, left, Sheik Moqdad, center, and human rights activist Abdul Hadi al-Khawaja, right, during a rally Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011, in Tubli, Bahrain, near the capital of Manama. Al-Wefaq is boycotting by-elections Saturday to fill seats vacated by its 18 members of Parliament who quit in protest of the government's crackdown on protesters during a spring uprising in the Gulf island country.
