Bahrain’s special security court handed down a death sentence Thursday for a protester who killed a policeman at an anti-government rally and gave lengthy sentences to doctors and nurses who treated injured protesters.

A government statement said the man was given the ultimate penalty for “intentionally” hitting the officer with his car. Another defendant who faced the same charges received life in prison.

Earlier this year, the same special court sentenced two other protesters to death for killing a police officer in a separate incident.

Twenty doctors, medics and nurses were given jail terms ranging from five to 15 years, according to a defense attorney. Activists said the doctors were arrested for treating demonstrators during the spring uprising that saw Shiite activists take over a central square in the capital, Manama.
