Saudi King Says Atheists Are Terrorists

Saudi Arabia has introduced a series of new laws which define atheists as terrorists, The Independent reported on Tuesday, citing Human Rights Watch.

In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could "harm public order," according to the report.
