"A lawyer in Bahrain says 17 suspected anti-government protesters have been sentenced to 15-year prison sentences for links to a bombing last year that injured four policemen. At the time, the April 2012 blast was a stunning escalation in more than two years of unrest between Bahrain's Sunni monarchy and the kingdom's majority Shiites seeking a greater political voice."
