Saudi Blogger in Solitary Confinement

Ahmad Fouad Al-Farhan, 32, a blogger and a resident of Jeddah, was arrested at his workplace by police on December 10. The police first took him home to collect his laptop computer and then took him to prison. Recently Al Farhan's mother said Saudi authorities allowed her son to telephone his family from Jeddah’s Dahban Prison. Al Farhan has not been informed of the charges against him. His detention is believed to be the first arrest of an online critic in the kingdom.
