Diplomatic tensions are rising between Saudi Arabia and Canada, after Canada accused the Saudi government of human rights violations and demanded the release of feminist activists imprisoned in the kingdom. In response, Saudi Arabia has expelled the Canadian ambassador, frozen trade with Canada and suspended direct flights to Toronto. Since May 15, Saudi Arabia has arrested at least 15 high-profile human rights and women’s rights activists.
