    A Bahrain appeals court convicted nine doctors for their role in last year's pro-democracy uprising, and acquitted nine others, in a controversial case that has drawn international criticism.

    The court gave Ali al-Ekry, former senior medic at the Salmaniya hospital in Manama, a five-year sentence and eight others sentences ranging from one month to three years. Two medics previously sentenced to 15 years each did not appeal and they are believed to have left the country or be in hiding.
