Riyadh: Five female terrorists, four of them Saudi Arabian nationals, are facing trial in the Gulf nation for organising a terror group and luring people into terrorism, media reported.

The Special Criminal Court in Riyadh heard that the unnamed women terror suspects used to get support and guidance from members of the terrorist organisations in Yemen and Afghanistan, the Saudi Gazette reported.

One of the suspects was preparing to send her sons to participate in the fighting in Afghanistan.

She also sent her 12-year-old daughter to get married to one of the Al Qaeda terrorists there.

In a telephone call to Saudi Arabia's embassy in Yemen in 2012, Mishal Muhammad Rasheed Al-Shadoukhi, one of the country's wanted terrorists, demanded the release of the five women.

The woman were arrested during the massive crackdown by authorities in Saudi Arabia where hundreds of terrorists have been sentenced for having links with Al Qaeda and its affiliated outfits.
