Three Dubai doctors have been handed one-year jail term over a botched nose surgery.

A Dubai court on Wednesday found a surgeon, an anaesthetist and an anaesthetic technician guilty of malpractice and negligence that left 25-year-old Rowda Al Maeeni in a coma.

The doctors, who worked for First Med Day Surgery Centre, will be deported after serving their prison term. 

The judge also fined the clinic AED 300,000.
