Saudi filmmakers arrested for YouTube video

Three Saudi men were detained on Sunday after a film they made exposing poverty in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s capital, was aired on television. Feras Bugnah, a popular Saudi blogger, and Khalid al-Rasheed and Hosam al-Deraiwish were allegedly imprisoned after being questioned by police — officials have yet to comment. The film was a part of a YouTube series created by Bugnah called “Malub Aleina” (We Are Being Cheated). Part of the series aired on the London-based Al-Islah, which is operated by the banned Movement for Islamic Reform in Saudi Arabia.
