Submission + - Journalist arrested by Interpol for Tweet (guardian.co.uk)

StarWreck writes: Police in Kuala Lumpur detained Hamza Kashgari, 23, "following a request made to us by Interpol" on behalf of the Saudi authorities. Kashgari, a newspaper columnist, fled Saudi Arabia after posting a tweet which read: "I have loved things about you and I have hated things about you and there is a lot I don't understand about you I will not pray for you." Said tweet sparked outrage in Saudi Arabia and resulted in multiple death threats. Kashgari faces the death penalty in Saudi Arabia.
