Description

Three more Bahraini political activists have been sentenced to life in prison as the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom steps up its crackdown on internal dissent. The three were accused of being involved in anti-government unrest. Six additional people were handed 10-year jail terms for their involvement in protests. Last month, eight people were sentenced to life terms on similar charges. Bahrain has been gripped by anti-government protests since a popular uprising began in 2011. The ruling Al Khalifa regime has responded to those protests with a heavy-handed crackdown, killing scores and injuring and arresting thousands of others. Jim W.
