A Bahraini court on Tuesday revoked the citizenship of 115 people on charges of terrorism and espionage.

In a statement, prosecutor Hamad Shahin said the court jailed 53 people for life in prison and 62 others for three years each.

Twenty-three people were acquitted by the court, he said.

The 115 defendants are among a group of 138 people standing trial on terrorism and espionage charges and forming an outlawed group.
