A court in Bahrain has sentenced 23 people to 10 years in prison each over their alleged  involvement in an attack on Al Khalifa regime forces in the kingdom.

According to Bahraini media, the country’s High Criminal Court ruled on Wednesday that the defendants had detonated an explosive device intended to target regime forces. Additionally, they were charged with unlawful assembly in the northwestern village of Bani Jamra.

This comes as the Bahraini judiciary has come under fire by many human rights groups for handing down long jail terms to anti-regime protesters and activists in the country.

Amnesty International and other rights groups have repeatedly criticized the Bahraini regime over the “rampant” human rights abuses against opposition activists and anti-government protesters.
