Bahrain's special security court on Thursday sentenced a protester to death for killing a policeman, and gave doctors and nurses who treated injured protesters during the country's uprising earlier this year lengthy prison sentences, a lawyer said.
As for the case of the medics, Mr. Flaifel said they were convicted on charges that include taking part in efforts to "topple the regime," possessing "unlicensed light weapons" and "spreading fabricated stories and lies."
In comments to the state-run Bahrain News Agency, Mr. Flaifel said the men committed a "terror act" by running over the policeman with two cars.
