No News of Jordanian Activist Held in Saudi Arabia

Jordan says it has no official word from Saudi Arabia about one of its citizens apprehended by authorities there 50 days ago.

Jordanian foreign ministry spokeswoman Sabah Rafie told the Associated Press Monday that Jordan has yet to receive a formal response regarding the detention of Khaled Natour at Riyadh airport.

Natour, who has protested outside the Saudi embassy in Amman against the Saudi-led military intervention in Bahrain, traveled to Saudi Arabia on a work visa but was detained upon arrival in King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh.
