A court in Bahrain has ordered a retrial in the case of a hunger-striker who was jailed for leading last year's pro-democracy protests.
Abdul-Hadi al-Khawaja and 20 other activists were convicted by a military court last year.
But in an interview with the BBC's Frank Gardner Mr Khawaja's wife has accused the authorities of buying time for themselves with a meaningless gesture.
