The Foreign and Commonwealth Office monitors events in Bahrain closely. We are aware of the case of Zuhair Ebrahim and are seeking further information. It is the UK's longstanding position to oppose capital sentences in all circumstances and countries. We continue to make this clear to the Government of Bahrain.
