Bahrain to release prominent female activist

11 May 2016 18:12



Foreign Ministry says a prominent female political activist will be released after nearly two months in prison. In a statement on Monday, it says Zainab Al Khawaja is being released on humanitarian grounds because of her year-old son, who was permitted to be with her in prison.

She had faced three years in prison over a variety of charges related to her participation in anti-government protests, including several in which she tore up pictures of Bahrain’s King Hamad Bin Eisa Al Khalifa.
