Rajab appeared in the Manama court, where the judge set a new hearing for Sunday, activists said. Rajab, a member of Bahrain’s Shiite majority, which has been protesting against the Gulf kingdom’s Sunni rulers since 2011, was arrested on October 1 after posting comments on Twitter about the interior and defence ministries.
