Yemeni writer Marwan Almuraisy was arrested and disappeared in Saudi Arabia

On 1 June 2018, it was reported that the Yemeni writer, Marwan Almuraisy, was arrested at his home in Riyadh. Four months after the arrest, his whereabouts are still unknown, and he has been held incommunicado, as reported by human rights organisations. Almuraisy used to tweet on technology, innovation, and science and did some reporting for a privately-owned Saudi Arabian website and other outlets that focused on science and technology. He also managed several Twitter accounts on world statistics and data and short films in Arabic. Advox argues that Almuraisy was not publically involved in political or human rights activism.
