An appeals court in Bahrain has partially overturned a court ruling sentencing 20 medics to lengthy prison terms for taking part in anti-government protests.
Nine were acquitted but one doctor was sentenced to five years in prison.
Another was given three years, and further seven were given prison terms of between a month and a year.
The BBC reports many of the 20 were working at the Salmaniya Medical Complex in the capital Manama last February and March, when security forces violently suppressed pro-democracy protests.
In September, a military court found them guilty of publicly inciting "hatred and contempt", as well as engaging in illegal assemblies.
