Saudi Arabia Arrests Five for Internet Use

The Saudi Ministry of Interior announced the arrest of five individuals "who used the Internet to propagate extremism and incite youths to go to troubled areas".

"The group members "hid behind their computers and gave themselves several assumed names" in order to post material under one alias and post support for it under a different alias, the [interior] ministry said.

"The aim was to give the impression that their ideas "enjoy support from society and to encourage those deluded (by the propaganda) to communicate with them as a prelude to recruiting them for their despicable goals," it added."
