    Jailed Saudi woman activist told to deny torture in release 'deal'


    Jailed Saudi woman activist told to deny torture in release 'deal'

    Saudi authorities have offered to release jailed activist Loujain al-Hathloul in exchange for her video testimony denying that she had been tortured and sexually harassed in prison, her family claimed Tuesday.



    "The Saudistate security has visited my sister in prison recently. They have asked her to... appear on video to deny the torture and harassment," her brother Walid al-Hathloul, who is based in Canada, said on Twitter.

    "That was part of a deal to release her."

    And the Saudis ramble round Mecca singing "We are the World!"

    No nominations for them in any category. The U.N. should set up a special Committee for Cruelty Under Doctrinal Mandates and look as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as its first case.

    Where is Sooda?
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan
