Saudi journalist Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser is alleged to have been tortured to death after Saudi authorities claimed he was behind the Twitter account Kashkool, which revealed rights violations committed by the Saudi government and the royal family. Sources reported that moles inside Twitter identified the journalist as the account’s administrator. Sources say the moles are part of the ‘Saudi Cyber Army’. Last year, the Crown Prince began a crackdown on “corruption” and arrested prominent members of the royal family, government and big business, detaining them at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh. The anti-corruption campaign has netted more than $106 billion in financial settlements and 56 people remain in custody. The previous murder of journalist Khashoggi got a large media response because it happened in another country, Turkey, and they turned it into an international scandal.
