Bahrain's appeals court on Monday confirmed a nine-year jail sentence against a Shiite opposition chief for inciting hatred and calling for regime change by force, a judicial source said.

The verdict against cleric Ali Salman, whose Al-Wefaq movement was dissolved in July, was reimposed after the court of cassation had overturned the nine-year jail term in October.
