Saudi Arabia Launches Campaign Against Violent Video Games

We’ve not got much detail on this one, but The MEMRI Blog, a site which publishes translated political news from the Arab world, reports that:
 

Government elements in Saudi Arabia have launched a campaign against violent video games, some of which depict war between U.S. forces and Al-Qaeda.

 

This move is part of Saudi Arabia’s struggle against sources of violence, in the framework of which security and media elements are warning against the spread of such games.

GP: By the way, MEMRI = Middle East Media Research Institute, and the site is given high praise by David Kaplan, chief investigative reporter for U.S. News & World Report.
