Bahrain releases Shiite female protester

DUBAI: Bahraini authorities have released activist Zainab al-Khawaja after she served a one-month jail sentence for attacking a policewoman at a protest, her lawyer Mohammed al-Jishi told AFP on Wednesday.

“Zainab was released on Tuesday after she served her one-month jail term,” Jishi told AFP. She also paid a 200 dinars ($530) fine for having insulted a police officer.

The daughter of prominent jailed Shiite opponent, Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, who ended a 110-day hunger strike on Monday, was convicted of attacking a policewoman and taking part in an illegal rally.

She is still on trial over two other cases, including taking part in another illegal gathering and obstructing traffic by sitting in the middle of a main road in Manama, said Jishi.

Khawaja has been active in holding anti-government protests since security forces quelled a month-long Shiite-led uprising last year.

Amnesty International estimates that 60 people have been killed since protests broke out on February 14 last year. AFP
