Saudi women’s rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul faces trial in terrorism court

A women’s rights activist, who has been held by authorities in Saudi Arabia, has been put on trial – just days after the kingdom hosted the G20 summit.

Loujain al-Hathloul was arrested in 2018, shortly before women were given the right to drive. Her family say she has been tortured and will now be tried in a terrorism court. But could the change in a US administration make a difference for her?
