Bahrain TV airs terror plot confessions

Bahraini state television has aired the confessions of 14 people arrested for plotting attacks on the tiny Gulf island's capital.
The 40-minute program which aired on Sunday night showed the 14 Shiite men talking about how they were trained in Syria by Iraqis and Syrians, to make bombs.
The suspects were accused of plotting to attack commercial sites during Bahrain's December national holiday. Bahrain's majority Shiite are complain of neglect at the hands of the country's Sunni rulers.
Human rights lawyers in Bahrain said the aired confessions did not "respect" the concept of a fair trial.
