A prominent human rights activist from Moroccan-occupied Western Sahara was targeted with Pegasus spyware in recent months. That’s according to a new investigation by Amnesty International, which discovered software from the Israeli firm the NSO Group on two smartphones belonging to Sahrawi human rights defender Aminatou Haidar. Pegasus uses a “zero-click” exploit to secretly infect a mobile phone and harvest its information.
