Bahrain Mirror: A Bahraini court rejected a request to release prominent human rights activist and president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, Nabeel Rajab, on Tuesday (August 2, 2016), who is being tried over expressing his opinions.

The High Criminal Court adjourned the case until September 5, 2016.
