Cartoonist Quits Over Censorship

Saudi cartoonist Abdullah Jaber said he has quit his job at al-Jazirah newspaper after they have edited his drawing on the National Day without his permission.

“I have resigned from al-Jazirah newspaper,” Jaber said on Twitter Tuesday night, “due to their repeated infringement of my intellectual rights.”

Jaber attached a photo of the resignation letter he sent to the newspaper editor Khaled al-Malik along with his original cartoon that the paper edited without his knowledge.
