Bahrainian human rights activist gets 6 months in jail over a tweet.

Bahrainian human rights activist Nabeel Rajab has been handed a six-month jail sentence for a tweet that insulted Bahrain's security institution.
Rajab's tweet said "Many Bahrainian men who joined terrorism and ISIS came from  security institutions and those institutions were the first ideological incubator."
The human rights activist has been granted bail at $500, while appealing the sentence.
Rajab was previously imprisoned in 2012 to 2014 for criticizing the human rights violations of the government of Bahrain.
