Gaza woman urges Saudi king to release her son

Aug. 23, 2011 2:14 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 24, 2011 6:41 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman in Gaza has written to King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz urging him to release her son, who has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia for over 18 months.

Maria Nasrallah Abu Khater, 90, said her son Muhammad was not given a reason for his detention.

Muhammad was a physician in the Saudi health ministry for over 30 years and has seven children. He suffers from kidney disease, she said.

His mother wrote: "I am suffering various diseases and he’s my only son and only support for me and his family [...] Only god knows how much I need him near me to support me and take care of me."

She urged the king to release her son or send him home to Gaza to be near his family.
