Saudi activist and Twitter user, Reema Al Joresh, was briefly arrested earlier today [August 19, 2012] when she was on her way to a mosque to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that follows Ramadan. Al Joresh is an outspoken critic of Saudi interior ministry's arbitrary detentions. Moreover, she is the wife of a prisoner who has been detained for eight years without a trial.

She was planning to give away 500 gifts that contain a letter to raise awareness about the issue of arbitrary detention in Saudi Arabia. (source: global voices blog)
