Bahrain Mirror: A Bahraini Court upheld on Wednesday (September 21, 2016) a two-year imprisonment sentence issued against preacher Habib al-Dirazi, after accusing him of participating in Diraz demonstrations.

Thousands of Bahrainis have been joining an ongoing sit-in protest held outside the house of the Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim since more than 90 days, in protest of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa's decree, ruling the revocation of Sheikh Isa's citizenship.
