The Special Criminal Court in Riyadh has issued deportation sentences to 526 foreign nationals currently serving prison terms in Saudi Arabia on terrorism charges.
The terrorists had been detained on a variety of charges, including involvement with Al-Qaeda, spying for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, and association with terrorist organizations such as the Houthis in Yemen and the Muslim Brotherhood.
