Saudi Arabia eases restrictions on women renting hotel rooms
  • The move follows reforms over the past year by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which has lifted a ban on cinemas in the kingdom and the world’s only ban on women driving
  • Critics note there are limits to the reforms, and point to last year’s killing of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and the reported torture of several detained women’s rights activists
