A Saudi woman has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for her social media posts, in the second case of its kind this month, activists say.

A terrorism court convicted Nourah bint Saeed al-Qahtani of "using the internet to tear the social fabric" and "violating public order by using social media", rights group Dawn reported.

Another woman was jailed for 34 years over her Twitter activity on 9 August.

Mr Biden had previously vowed to make Saudi Arabia a "pariah" over its human rights record."
