Saudi Arabia faced international criticism following the murder of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October 2018. Nevertheless, authorities continued to arbitrarily detain peaceful activists and dissidents without trial for long periods, including ten prominent women’s rights activists detained after May 2018. Dozens of human rights defenders are serving long prison sentences for criticizing authorities or advocating political and rights reforms. Authorities systematically discriminate against women and religious minorities. In 2018, Saudi Arabia carried out 148 executions, 59 for non-violent drug crimes. A Saudi-led coalition continued an airstrike campaign against Houthi forces in Yemen that included apparently unlawful strikes that killed civilians.
