Manama: Two men sentenced to death for an arson attack in which a policeman was killed have lost their appeals.
Father-of-two Mohammed Naveed died when he was trapped in a burning vehicle following an attack on a police patrol car in Karbabad village on April 16, 2016.
He suffered sixth-degree burns and firemen found his charred body when they broke into the car a few minutes after the attack.
Two other officers suffered serious injuries.
In June last year, 12 people were found guilty by the High Criminal Court.
Two of the convicts – Alsayed Ahmed Al Abar and Hussain Ali Mahdi, both aged 23 – were sentenced to death.
They appealed at the Supreme Criminal Appeals Court which rejected it today.
