West urges Saudi Arabia to release women activists, prosecute Khashoggi killers

West urges Saudi Arabia to release women activists, prosecute Khashoggi killersDozens of Western countries called on Tuesday for the release of women activists detained in Saudi Arabia and for those behind the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi to be brought to justice. At least a dozen prominent women's rights activists were arrested in Saudi Arabia in 2018 as it lifted a ban on women driving cars, a step that many of the detainees had long campaigned for. Germany, speaking on behalf of the European Union at the United Nations Human Rights Council, decried Saudi Arabia's "prolonged detentions of women rights defenders", including Loujain al-Hathloul.
