Bahrain sentences three activists to death, slaps life terms on four

 

A court in Bahrain has sentenced three people to death over alleged involvement in terror acts as the Al Khalifah regime presses ahead with its heavy-handed crackdown on pro-democracy campaigners in the Gulf kingdom.

Bahrain’s High Criminal Court on Thursday issued the verdicts against the suspects over purported bombings, which targeted anti-riot patrols in al-Qurayyah village and left a number of police officers injured.

Four other defendants were sentenced to life in prison, eight were handed down 15-year prison sentences, and two received 10-year jail terms.  

The court also ordered the confiscation of all materials seized from the suspects. On January 15, Bahrain executed three young activists by firing squad.
