Amnesty International said on Wednesday Saudi authorities have released a Jordanian reform activist who had been held since the beginning of the year in a case that drew concern over his rights.
"Khalid al-Natur, who had been held incommunicado in Saudi Arabia since 6 January was released on 7 April," Amnesty said.
"Throughout his detention, he was denied access to family and lawyers, and was not charged with any offence."
Natur, a website developer, was detained after he and four associates arrived at Riyadh airport on a business trip, according to Amnesty.
