Looting in Bahrain amid F1 disquiet


The people in charge of Formula 1 say the Bahrain Grand Prix will go ahead as planned next week, despite concerns over staging the race whilst there is continuing political unrest.

Pro-democracy groups in Bahrain have called for the race to be cancelled, but Bernie Ecclestone, who runs Formula 1, has now said the race is "200%" going to happen.

It comes as footage emerges showing looting in Bahrain, said to be the result of sectarian tension.
