Bahrain jails photojournalist for 10 years: RSF

A freelance photographer who covered demonstrations, like the one pictured here on January 26, 2015 in Bilad al-Qadeem, is jailed for 10 yearsA Bahraini court has jailed for 10 years a freelance photographer who covered demonstrations and revoked his citizenship after convicting him of “terrorism”, Reporters Without Borders said Tuesday. A criminal court convicted Sayed al-Mousawi on Sunday of having given mobile phone SIM cards to “terrorist” demonstrators and taking photos of protests, RSF said in a statement.
