Bahrain Grand Prix officials began selling tickets for April's Formula One race yesterday, offering an indication that the government is determined to hold the race despite ongoing protests that have paralysed parts of the capital, Manama, where at least 40 people have died.

Bahrain's season-opening race last year was called off because of the unrest. This year's is scheduled for 22 April and the sport's governing body, the FIA, insists the event will go ahead.
