FILE - In this Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011, file photo, Ahmed Mansour, an Emirati blogger and a human rights activist, talks with his children after he was pardoned by UAE's president and released from jail in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. More than 65 suspects accused of plotting an Islamist coup in UAE received prison sentences of up to 15 years on Tuesday, July 2, 2013, in a mass trial that underscored the widening crackdowns on perceived Arab Spring-inspired dissent across the entire Gulf Arab region. 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.
