“According to several reports and human rights agency sources, the Saudis have again tortured and killed a reporter.”
The reporter’s name is Abdul Aziz al-Jasser and he was allegedly arrested and tortured to death for criticizing Saudi human rights violations on Twitter and urging a withdrawal from Yemen.
Prisoners of Conscie, a social media account that covers the latest news about prisoners in Saudi Arabia, posted the following in one of their updates:
“Quoting @thenewkhaleej: The detained Saudi writer Turki al-Jasser is reported DEAD under severe torture in prison a few days after his arbitrary detention in March.”

Much of the mainstream media has stayed silent about this, which is surprising considering their outrage over the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.
The CIA recently concluded Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered Khashoggi’s murder.
