Saudi Arabia bans 420 books from the Riyadh International Book Fair, 2014

By Mansour Al-Shehri

... “Some books were banned for religious and moral reasons, and some for not conforming to public taste,” said Yousef Al-Yousef, director of the ministry’s publications administration, Monday.
“Twenty-five people representing a range of specialties took part in the identification and removal of books. Some publishers also left out some publications at their own discretion,” Al-Yousef said.
“All the participants in the event recognize that the censorship ceiling is particularly high,” he added.
