Bahrain appeals court reduces jail terms of protest doctors

14 June 2012 Last updated at 13:42 BST

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

Many of the medics facing jail were working at the Salmaniya Medical Complex in the capital Manama last February and March, when security forces violently suppressed pro-democracy protests.

Freed medic Dr Fatima Haji said after being released, that she was only doing her "daily duty".
