RIYADH  - Bahraini authorities on Sunday executed three Shi'ite Muslim men convicted of killing an Emirati police officer and two Bahraini policemen in a 2014 bomb attack, the public prosecutor said, in the first death sentences to be carried out since 2008.

The executions came less than a week after the country's highest court, the Court of Cassation, confirmed the death sentences originally imposed in 2015 against Abbas al-Samea, Sami Mushaima and Ali al-Singace.
