Malaysian authorities have deported a Saudi journalist accused of insulting the Prophet Muhammad in a tweet.
Police confirmed to the BBC that Hamza Kashgari was deported back to Saudi Arabia on Sunday despite protests from human rights groups.
He fled Saudi Arabia last week for Malaysia, where he was detained.
Mr Kashgari's controversial tweet on the prophet's birthday last week sparked more than 30,000 responses and several death threats.
