Bahrain has given jail terms, ranging from three to 10 years, to six more Shia activists.  

One of the convicts received a 10-year sentence, while two others were sentenced to five years each, and another to a three-year jail term, Bahrain’s Lulu TV reported.

The criminal court which issued the sentences on Saturday convicted them of “receiving financial aid from terrorist groups.” 

They were charged with spying for Qatar in what Amnesty International called a “travesty of justice.”
