Death sentences for three blast accused in Bahrain

Dubai - 

A Bahraini court on Monday upheld death sentences against three persons convicted of killing police officers including an Emirati officer in a bomb attack, a judicial source said. 

The decision by Bahrain’s Court of Cassation ends the trial of members of the group behind the March 2014 attack in a village near Manama, for which seven others had received life sentences.

The Emirati officer was part of the Saudi-led Gulf force which rolled into Bahrain in March 2011 to boost Bahraini security forces.
