HRW urges car companies to support detained Saudi activists


RIYADH Human Rights Watch (HRW) launched a campaign on Tuesday urging major car companies to call on Saudi Arabia to release women activists who fought for the right of women to drive in the conservative kingdom. A ban on women driving was lifted in June as part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's bid to transform the economy of the world's top oil exporter and open up its cloistered society. Many automobile manufacturers celebrated the decision with advertising campaigns. (Reuters)
