RAPE VICTIM SENTENCED TO 90 LASHES IN SAUDI ARABIA

A Saudi court has sentenced the victim of a gang rape to 90 lashes of the whip because she was alone in a car with a man to whom she was not married at the time she was raped. The male friend of the rape victim was also sentenced to 90 lashes for being alone with her in the car. The four Saudis convicted of rape were sentenced to prison terms. A fifth man who watched while he filmed the rape on his mobile phone still faces investigation. (This story was reported by the German news agency DPA).

In another case in Saudi Arabia, a woman has been punished for driving a car. Women are banned from driving in Saudi Arabia. Her passport has also been temporarily suspended.
