Wife of Flogged Saudi Blogger Says His Health is Getting Worse

The wife of a Saudi rights activist, who was sentenced to 1,000 lashes last year, said Thursday her husband’s health had worsened after the first round of flogging and that he could not possibly survive the full punishment.

Raif Badawi, a blogger and founder of the “Free Saudi Liberals” website, received 50 lashes on Jan 9. The second round has twice been postponed on medical grounds. Badawi was arrested in June 2012 for offences including insulting Islam, cyber crime and disobeying his father, which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.
