CAIRO— A Saudi human rights group has asked Saudi King Abdullah to fire the kingdom's powerful interior minister, Prince Nayef, and prosecute him for what it says are systematic human rights violations in the country.

In an unprecedented move, the Saudi Civil and Political Rights Association sent a letter to the king saying the Interior Ministry's policies are a fundamental force driving local and global violence and extremism.

A copy of the letter, e-mailed to The AP in Cairo Friday, said the ministry has robbed the people of their rights and grown less tolerant of those who resist injustice, tyranny and corruption.
