Al-Jazeera Video: Bahraini medics face retrial over protests
"Bahraini doctors on Monday will face a retrial on charges of attempting to topple the monarchy and inciting hatred against the regime during the protests, quashed in March.
The 20 medics, some of whom
were forced to make televised confessions against each other
, face prison sentences of
up to 15 years for their involvement in the protests
An independent report released on Tuesday called for their trials to be reviewed.
Al Jazeera's Nick Clark spoke to
Dr. Nada Deif - who was sentenced to 15 years
- about her case."
