MANAMA: Five people, including a woman who used a pillow to pretend she was pregnant, were sentenced to five years in jail on Tuesday for plotting to disrupt the 2013 Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix by planting a bomb at the circuit, state news agency BNA said.
It said policewomen foiled the scheme when they searched the woman and found her disguise while she was on a trial run for smuggling a home-made bomb in on the day of the race in April last year.
The agency did not name the five but said they had confessed to the plot.
The Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights (BYSHR) identified the two women as activists Nafisa al-Asfoor, 31, and Rayhana al-Musawi, 38.
