Trial of Bahrain protest boy Ali Hasan adjourned
Thursday 21 June 2012
A court has adjourned the case of an 11-year-old boy accused of taking part in anti-government protests. A verdict is now expected on 5 July.
Ali Hasan, who appeared in court alongside his father, spent a month behind bars and took his final school exams there.
He faces charges of joining an illegal gathering and other claims related to the continuing unrest in the troubled Gulf nation. His defence lawyer, Shahzalan Khamis, asked the court to drop the charges.
The boy is among the youngest suspects detained in crackdowns on protests led by Bahrain's Shia majority.
