DUBAI - A Bahraini civilian court on Tuesday upheld sentences against 20 leaders of last year's uprising, the government's Information Affairs Authority said on Twitter.

The verdicts, originally issued by a military court, include eight life sentences. Defense lawyers have said the civilian court's decision may still be appealed.
