What's behind Saudi Arabia's arrest of religious leaders?
Saudi Arabia has arrested prominent preacher and scholar Safar Al-Hawali just days after he published a book criticising the ruling family.
Three of his sons - Abdul Rahman, Abdullah and Ibrahim - were also detained.
Rights groups say Abdul Rahman and Abdullah were reportedly taken into custody while attending a family wedding on Wednesday.
While Hawali and his son Ibrahim were arrested the following morning.
Hawali became known almost three decades ago as the leader of the Sahwa movement - which advocated for democracy in Saudi Arabia.
He was previously detained for opposing the ruling family.
Saudi Arabia, under Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, has launched a crackdown against activists, religious figures and opponents in recent months.
But how far will this go?
