UAE coup trial offers window into wider Gulf fears
FILE - In this Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011 file photo, Ahmed Mansour, an Emirati blogger and a human rights activists talks with his children after he was pardoned by UAE's president and released from jail in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In early March 2013, a total of 94 people were put on trial on charges of seeking to overthrow the UAE government and holding ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other groups. The defendants pleaded not guilty and complained of abuses after their arrests. Mansour and four others including a former legal adviser to the UAE's armed forces were among the first to face arrests for alleged anti-state crimes in early 2011 after signing an online petition urging for political reforms, including free elections for parliament.
