Bahrain court upholds life sentence on opposition

Published: 01.07.13, 17:05 / Israel News

Bahrain's highest court Monday upheld jail terms for 20 opposition figures - including eight sentenced to life - for alleged plots to "overthrow" the state in a decision likely to touch off more protests in the Gulf nation and bring renewed criticism from its Western allies.

The group includes a rights activist who staged a 110-day hunger strike last year to protest the verdicts, which critics have denounced as part of attempts to crush an Arab Spring-inspired uprising began nearly two years ago in the strategic island kingdom. (AP)
