In more news about Saudi Arabia, The New York Times is reporting that a dual U.S.-Saudi citizen was tortured by Saudi authorities. Walid Fitaihi, a Harvard-trained doctor, was reportedly electroshocked and whipped while detained at the Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh. Fitaihi was arrested alongside hundreds of other prominent Saudis in 2017 during a government crackdown ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He is still in detention, and it’s unknown whether he has been charged with any crime.
