Last month, Palestinian pro-democracy activist Iyad el-Baghdadi was taken into protective custody by authorities in Norway, where he lives with his family. The CIA received a tip regarding a specific threat against him. El-Baghdadi said he believes that threat is related to his criticism of Saudi Arabia and his work with murdered Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi. El-Baghdadi talks about his situation and his ongoing human rights activism with host Marco Werman.
