The Post reports the arrest of Zunar in Malaysia

The Post reports the arrest of Zunar, a cartoonist who has recently visited Washington, in Malaysia over a tweet. The news is essentially a footnote in the article, so I'm quoting it below.

"Human Rights Watch reported that the Malaysian government on Tuesday also arrested a well-known Malaysian cartoonist, Zunar, after he tweeted: "The lackeys in black robes are proud about their sentence. The reward from political masters must be plenty.""

Comic Riffs has recently spoken with Zunar over the Charlie Hebdo massacres.
