Middle East protests: Now the Saudis take to the streets to demand the release of prisoners held without trial | Mail OnlineDozens of Saudi men and women have gathered outside the Interior Ministry in Riyadh to demand the release of their relatives who have been held without trial for years.
The move came despite King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia offering $93 billion (£57.5billion) in handouts to try and ease the political unrest.
Protests in Saudi Arabia are banned however it was the third protest this month by families and activists demanding information on the fate of people held for years on security and terrorism charges.
Two-thousand special forces and 200 police vehicles were drafted in as the Saudi Arabian authorities showed their determination to prevent the spread of unrest inspired by uprisings across the Arab world.
Excellent, go Saudi's! Never underestimate a massive group of pissed off people!
