Loujain al-Hathloul: Saudi court hands prison sentence to women's rights activist

A Saudi terrorism court on Monday sentenced prominent women's rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul to five years and eight months in prison, in a case that has drawn international criticism from rights groups and governments.

The Specialised Criminal Court suspended two years and 10 months of her sentence "if she does not commit any crime" within the next three years, local media reported.

The Riyadh court convicted the 31-year-old under acts that fall under a Saudi law on combating and financing terrorism.
