Popular Saudi Blogger Freed

Susan Hall

A popular Saudi blogger who spent four months in prison without ever being charged has been freed, reports The Washington Post.


Fouad al-Farhan, 33, said he was "fairly treated" since being detained in December. Farhan, who had used his blog to criticize corruption and call for government reform, said he will resume blogging soon.


He had been detained after authorities warned him about his online support of 10 men the government called terrorists. He maintained they wanted to form a civil rights group, according to News.com.
