Qatar's NHRC condemns arrest of Qatari national

The National Human Rights Committee in Qatar says Nawaf Talal al-Rasheed's case is an example of how Saudi Arabia uses false reasons to detain Qatari nationals.

    It has been one week since Qatari citizen Nawaf Talal al-Rasheed was arrested in Kuwait and then transferred to Saudi Arabia.

    As his family waits for news of where he is being detained, rights groups are accusing Saudi Arabia of violating his rights.

    Al Jazeera's Laura Burdon-Manley reports.
