A Bahraini court on Wednesday sent Shia activist Zainab Al-Khawaja to two months in jail after finding her guilty of destroying property belonging to the interior ministry, a judicial source said.
Zainab, daughter of prominent jailed opposition activist Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja who is serving a life sentence after he was convicted of plotting against the state, had been released in May after serving a one month jail term for attacking a policewoman at a demonstration.
She had also paid a 200 dinars ($530) fine for having insulted a police officer.
Zainab is also facing two other cases -- obstructing traffic on a main road as well as taking part in a gathering and inciting hatred against the regime -- for which she will be tried in November, the judicial source told AFP.
She has been active in holding anti-government protests since security forces quelled a month-long Shia-led uprising last year.
According to the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), 80 people have died in Bahrain since the start of the violence on February 14, 2011.
