Bahrain clears medics of charges in protests

An appeals court in Bahrain has overturned the conviction of 21 medics for their role in anti-government protests two years ago.

Prosecutors had convicted about two dozen medics on misdemeanor charges, saying they had turned the Salmaniya Medical Center in the capital Manama into "a place of illegal gatherings and strikes, in violation of laws" during the protests.

    If they weren't short of medics, they would have shot them already. First aid, anyone? Have a shot. It'll do you good.
