Saudi Sisters Escape to Georgia and Plead for Asylum on Twitter
TBILISI, Georgia— For the people of Saudi Arabia, its victims, and anyone who values human rights, Wednesday, April 17th, was a painful day.
First, President Trump vetoed a bill that would have ended U.S. support for the Saudi war in Yemen.
Then, an abrupt cancellation of a criminal court in Riyadh left some 30 Saudi human-rights activists in prison. Among the detained are two U.S. citizens and the dissident Loujain Al-Hathloul who was arrested for campaigning against the Saudi male guardianship system and for the woman’s right to drive.
