Post Claims Saudi Militants Tortured To Death At Saudi Prison

(al Ekhlaas )
A Saudi militant who was on the country's most wanted list died in al Haer prison, according to a post on the popular militant Islamist Internet forum al Ekhlaas. Abdullah al Rumian had been arrested in Arbil in the Kurdish parts of Iraq in May 2003 and was extradited to Saudi Arabia last September.

Abu Dajana, the forum member who reported the incident, said Rumian's family had been handed the body at the prison and were told not to tell anybody about his death. Abu Dajana did not specify the source of his information.
