DUBAI - Jailed Bahraini activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja will end a more than three-month-long hunger strike on Monday evening because he has managed to draw attention to the issue of imprisoned activists, his lawyer said.

Mohammed al-Jishi said a detailed statement by Khawaja was to be issued later on Monday.

"Starting this evening he will stop his hunger strike ... the strike has generally achieved its results to shed the light on the case of the detainees in Bahrain," Jishi told Reuters by telephone from Manama.
