Bahrain prosecutors said Tuesday scores of people will stand trial next month on charges of setting up a "terrorist organization," espionage and armed attacks on police officers.The case pertains to Bahrain's allegation last year that Iranian Revolutionary Guards helped fugitives from the Western-allied Gulf kingdom join forces to set up a Shiite militant group called the Zulfiqar Brigades to destabilize the state.Bahrain accuses government-sanctioned groups in Iran, the Middle East's Shiite big power, of supporting militants trying to topple its kingdom, a charge the Islamic Republic denies.Bahrain has also since revoked the citizenship of the spiritual leader of the country's Shiites, Ayatollah Isa Qassim, and charged him with collecting funds without a permit and money laundering.
