"A Bahrain court sentenced eight Shia opposition activists to life in prison Wednesday for 'plotting to overthrow' the kingdom’s Sunni rulers, nearly a week ahead of a national dialogue proposed by the king. The National Safety Court of first instance also jailed 13 others with sentences carrying terms between two to 15 years on similar charges, state news agency BNA added." (06/22/11)
