A court in Thailand on Monday sentenced two theatre activists charged with insulting Thailand's monarchy to two and a half years in prison each.

The pair was involved in producing a play called "The Wolf Bride" about a fictional monarch and his adviser. It was performed at Bangkok's Thammasat University in 2013 to mark the anniversary of a successful 1973 anti-dictatorship uprising led by students.
