Bahraini court sentences 12 Shiites over attack on police to five years in prison - News - World - The Voice of Russia: News,
A Bahraini court on Sunday sentenced 12 Shiites, including three minors, to prison terms of up to five years for attacking a police patrol with Molotov cocktails, a judicial source said.
The nine adults were sentenced to five years in jail each while the three minors were handed down three-year sentences for the April 2012 attack in a Shiite suburb of Manama.
The jail terms are the latest to be handed down to Shiites accused of violence in the Sunni-ruled Gulf monarchy.
On Monday, 16 Shiites were sentenced to seven years in prison each after being convicted of attacking a police patrol with Molotov cocktails in May last year and for taking part in an unauthorised protest.
