Bahraini protestA court in Bahrain has sentenced four anti-regime protesters each to seven years in prison as the ruling Al Khalifa regime steps up its crackdown on dissent.
The defendants, aged between 24 and 34, were convicted of attacking the kingdom’s security

forces.
The incident marks the latest in a series of harsh sentences handed down to protesters in the Persian Gulf nation.
On Tuesday, the Bahraini court also sentenced 12 people to life imprisonment after allegedly finding them guilty of participating in unauthorized demonstrations in the country. Two other Bahrainis were also sentenced to 15 years in jail.
On April 14, eleven anti-regime protesters were also handed down five-year jail sentences for taking part in an anti-regime demonstration in a village near the capital, Manama last year.
Seven anti-regime protesters were also sentenced to 15 years in prison on April 6. Bahraini judicial sources said that the protesters were sentenced for allegedly attacking a Bahraini policeman in the village of Dia near Manama during a demonstration in December 2012.
Thousands of pro-democracy protesters have held numerous demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain since February 2011, calling for the Al Khalifa royal family to relinquish power.
Scores of Bahrainis have been killed and hundreds injured and jailed by the regime forces since the uprising broke out.
