Bahrain Mirror: The First High Appeals Criminal Court commuted the sentence of a Bahraini youth from life imprisonment to 15 years in prison in a political case.

The authorities accuse the suspect and 17 others of assembling, burning tires and attempting to set a police patrol to fire in Adhari.

In 2014, the court sentenced 16 suspects in the case to life imprisonment and handed down 10-year jail term to 2 others over the charges brought against them.
