Bahrain Mirror: The High Appeals Court upheld a one-year jail term against a political prisoner accused of putting hoax bomb in A'ali.

A first-instance court said that the suspect is under 18 years, considering it a commuted excuse.

The hoax bodies the youth was accused to have put were made of black gallons connected to electric wires, tapes, electronic devices, a bag, gloves and pieces of burlap.

The authorities said that they identified the accused through checking and matching the traces of valid fingerprints in the fingerprints database and the matching of the accused's fingerprints with more than 12 distinctive marks with fingerprints from the samples raised.
