Bahrain set a two-week ultimatum Thursday for the return of citizens fighting as jihadists abroad, saying they will be charged under the Gulf kingdom's anti-terror laws if they do not.At the end of February, the ministry warned that the law currently providing up to five years in prison for its citizens fighting abroad, including in Syria, would be toughened.Riyadh toughened its stance on March 7, listing the Muslim Brotherhood and two Syrian jihadist groups as terrorist organisations, and ordering Saudis fighting abroad to return home within 15 days or face prison.
