List of articles censored in Saudi Arabia

Osama Khalid-2
Hello,

Saudi Arabian authorities censor certain articles on the English and
Arabic editions of Wikipedia.  A Saudi volunteer did a great job
making a list of these articles.

On the English Wikipedia, all currently-known articles are related to
sex education, but notability on the Arabic Wikipedia, the article
about evolution is censored!

Here is the list:

Are these articles still blocked when using https or the old secure gateway?
