The Daily Telegraph - - World news -

An aide to Saudi Ara­bia’s crown prince, fired for his role in the killing of jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi, over­saw the tor­ture of at least one de­tained fe­male ac­tivist ear­lier this year, two sources have said.

Saud al-qah­tani was al­legedly one of a group of men who sub­jected the woman and at least three oth­ers to sex­ual ha­rass­ment, elec­tro­cu­tion and flog­ging be­tween May and Au­gust at an unof­fi­cial hold­ing fa­cil­ity in Jed­dah.
