Bahrain court upholds dissolution of main opposition group

A Bahraini appeals court on Thursday upheld an order dissolving the country’s main  opposition group .
A lower court had ordered the dissolution of the Al-Wefaq association in July over accusations including “harbouring terrorism” and ordered its funds to be seized by the government.
Al-Wefaq was the largest group in parliament before its lawmakers resigned en masse in protest at the crushing of Arab Spring-inspired demonstrations in 2011 calling for an elected government.
