A Bahraini appeals court has partially overturned a court ruling sentencing 20 medics to lengthy jail terms for taking part in anti-government protests.

Nine of the medics were acquitted but one of the doctors, Ali al-Ekri, was sentenced to five years in jail.

Another was given three years, while a further seven medics were handed jail terms of between a month and a year.

Two of the medics convicted last year did not appeal - they are thought to have left Bahrain or gone into hiding.
