SAUDI ARABIA TORTURED US CITIZEN: REPORT

An American citizen was allegedly tortured while in custody in Saudi Arabia, according to a report by the New York Times.

Walid Fitaihi described being dragged from his room in Riyadh's Ritz Carlton hotel, where he was being detained, then told a friend he was "blindfolded, stripped of his underwear and bound to a chair," the report said.

The Harvard-trained doctor was then reportedly shocked with electricity in "what appears to have been a single session of torture that lasted about an hour", the daily reported.

It also said he was whipped so severely, he could not sleep on his back for days.
