Among those on trial is British citizen Jaffar al-Hasabi, a 38-year-old London minicab driver.

His lawyer, Mohamed al-Tajer, has told the BBC that he was beaten all over his body and hung from his hands and feet while in detention. Bahraini officials deny charges that any of the detainees have been mistreated.
