Bahrain police fired tear gas in clashes with rioting youths two days before the Formula One Grand Prix in the Gulf kingdom.
The organisers of this Sunday's F1 Grand Prix in Bahrain have vowed that violent protests against the race will not stop it taking place.
Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has offered to put millions towards holding a grand prix motor race on the streets of London.
Chris Hemsworth has likened playing Formula One champion James Hunt in Rush to playing superhero Thor.
The Australian heartthrob was joined in London's Leicester Square by co-stars Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Mari Lara and director Ron Howard for the premiere of the gripping real-life drama about two rival 1970s racing drivers .
"I guess, playing a real-life character, there's a huge responsibility and weight on your shoulders to do that person justice and memory of that person," he said.
The film hits cinemas on September 27th.
Lewis Hamilton has won the Hungarian Grand Prix - the British F1 driver's first win of the season and his first since joining the Mercedes team.
Hamilton, who started the race in pole position, finished ahead of Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel.
Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone says he has been indicted by German prosecutors for alleged bribery.
Mr Ecclestone has been under investigation since a German banker was convicted of taking an illegal payment from him worth $44 million in connection with the sale of a stake in F1.
The multi-millionaire told the Munich state court he felt pressured into paying the cash in 2006 because he was worried that Gerhard Gribkowsky would report him to British tax authorities.
Ecclestone told The Associated Press that his lawyers "have accepted an indictment. It means they have to reply to the indictment which they are strenuously doing."
Ecclestone confirmed that the prosecutors are "alleging I bribed someone" but says he did "nothing illegal."
Australian driver Mark Webber has said he will leave Formula One at the end of the season to join Porsche in sports car racing.
The 89-year-old said his condition was "mild" and that the cancer is very treatable.
Here is some more information on the illness:
What is the lymphatic system?
The lymphatic system is one of the body's natural defences against infection and also acts as a one-way drainage system transporting fluid from body tissues into the blood circulation.
The system is made up of lymph nodes which are found mainly in the neck, armpits, groin and abdomen.
What is Lymphoma?
Lymphoma is a cancer which starts in cells, the lymph nodes, and other tissues of the lymphatic system.
There are two types of cancer which can start in the lymph nodes - Hodgkin lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
What are the differences between the two?
The main difference between the two is the presence of a specific type of abnormal cell called a Reed Sternberg cell in Hodgkin's lymphoma.
The distinction is important as the outcomes and treatment for each type can be very different.
