Saudi closes embassy in Egypt over protests against crimes of Saudi regime

Publication time: 28 April 2012, 19:02
Saudi Arabia has decided to recall its ambassador to Cairo and close its diplomatic missions in Egypt after protests outside its embassy over an arrested Egyptian lawyer, state news agency SPA reported.

An official spokesman said on Saturday that the measures were decided in response to demonstrations outside its missions in Egypt following the announcement of the arrest of the Egyptian lawyer in Saudi Arabia.

Hundreds of Egyptians have rallied outside the Saudi embassy this week to demand the release of Ahmed el-Gezawi, who was detained in Saudi Arabia for allegedly insulting the kingdom's monarch.

On Tuesday, hundreds of Egyptians protested outside the embassy demanding the release of an Egyptian human rights activist.

The protesters chanted slogans against the Saudi regime as they called for the immediate release of Ahmed Mohammed al-Gizawi, who was arrested on arrival at Jeddah airport on April 17.

Gizawi was detained following a sentence of one year in prison and 20 lashes delivered against him in absentia for criticism of the Saudi government.

Gizawi, who travelled to the Gulf state on pilgrimage, was being targeted for his activism in favor of Egyptian detainees in Saudi prisons.
