Bahrain cuts jail terms of two policemen who tortured protester to death

"Bahrain's appeals court on Sunday cut the jail terms of two policemen convicted of torturing to death a protester after a 2011 crackdown on anti-government demonstrations, a judicial source said.
The court reduced the terms of the men from seven years to three after a lower court had convicted them in December over Abdul Karim Fakhrawi's killing in custody in April 2011."
