9 Sep 2004

According to the Sydney Morning Herald two Saudi women were badly beaten by other female guests at a wedding party, after they were seen using a mobile phone to photograph the segregated celebration. Men and women in the kingdom celebrate weddings separately, giving women the option of discarding the all-covering black cloaks and veils that they are obliged to wear in the presence of men. Wireless handsets with cameras are ostensibly banned from Saudi.
