A Singapore court sentenced 17-year-old blogger Amos Yee to six weeks in jail Thursday for "wounding religious feelings", his second prison term in a year, reigniting concerns about social controls and censorship in the conservative city-state.Yee, who was accompanied by his mother, described the sentence as "very fair".Yee was convicted on charges of harassment and insulting a religious group last year over comments he made about former premier Lee Kuan Yew and Christians soon after Lee's death. His sentence then amounted to four weeks in jail he had already served.
