Saudi Arabia detains Badawi along with her two year old daughter. Saudi authorities deny that Badawi has been arrested, but do say that she is being questioned at a police station. Amnesty International calls for her immediate release. The Raif Badawi Foundation, says that Badawi is charged with running the Twitter account of her ex-husband, another activist serving a 15 year sentence. Human Rights Watch:
The detention of Samar Badawi shows once again Saudi Arabia’s determination to silence those with the courage to speak out for human rights and reform.
