Bahrain jails 19 Shiites for 'attempted murder'
[Al Ahram] A Bahraini court on Sunday sentenced 19 Shiites to five years each in jail for the "attempted murder" of policemen during unrest which swept the Gulf state in 2011, lawyers said. They were found guilty of setting an ambush for police and attacking them with Molotov cocktails during demonstrations last December 23-30 in the Shiite village of Nuidrat near the Gulf state's capital Manama. Nine other defendants were acquitted.
