[world politics news]

The citizenship of more than 500 people in Bahrain has been restored after an intervention by King Hamad. The leader issued an order to reinstate the citizenship of 551 prisoners whose nationality had been revoked by the courts.

King Hamad, who can reverse judicial decisions, requested that the authorities take "the nature of crimes committed" into account. The order didn't specify the crimes for which the prisoners had been convicted.
