KSA releases 11 questioned over foreign ties: official

Saudi Arabian authorities have released 11 citizens who were detained for several days last month for questioning over suspected links to foreign entities, a Saudi official told Reuters. The new wave of detentions came as the kingdom assumes the presidency of the Group of 20 countries amid sustained Western criticism of its human rights record following last year’s killing of prominent journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents. The detainees were questioned on suspicion of receiving funds from foreign countries and coordinating with hostile organisations, the official told Reuters without providing more details or evidence. None of them have been indicted but the case remains open and charges could still be laid, added the official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
