Nine medics accused of illegally occupying Bahrain’s main hospital and possessing weapons during last year’s unrest have been acquitted.

Nine others also had their sentences slashed from 15 years, 10 years and five years to periods ranging from five years to one month during a tense hearing at the Supreme Criminal Appeals Court yesterday.

The ruling, in what has been one of the country’s most high-profile court cases related to unrest, was issued after 12 months of legal wrangling.
