Saudi Police Fire Warning Shots, Arrest 50 at Rally
RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi police fired into the air during a rare demonstration Tuesday and arrested up to 50 protesters calling for greater reforms during the kingdom's first human rights conference.
Police fired the warning shots to disperse the protesters and made the arrests, witnesses said. Authorities also set up roadblocks to prevent them from reaching the conference building, they added.
