Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor has reportedly sought the death penalty for five activists, including the female rights defender Israa al-Ghomgham.
Human Rights Watch said they recently went on trial at a terrorism tribunal on charges including “participating in protests” in the restive Qatif region.
It has been the scene of demonstrations by the minority Shia Muslim community.
Ms Ghomgham is believed to be the first Saudi woman to possibly face the death penalty for rights-related work.
