MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — A defense lawyer in Bahrain says a judge has sentenced four people to life in prison for a bombing that authorities said targeted police in the restive Gulf nation.
Thursday's sentences for the March blast are the most severe in a series of recent court action against suspects charged with attacks and alleged plots to topple the Sunni monarchy in the strategic kingdom, which is home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet.
Bahrain's Shiite majority has led a more than two year uprising seeking greater political rights. The verdicts are likely to stir more clashes.
The lawyer, Mohammad al-Tager, says the four suspects were convicted of the roadside bombing that wounded a worker when it missed its alleged target.
Two of the suspects were convicted in absentia.
