Saudi Woman Journalist Sentenced to 60 Lashes

Beyond the Veil| Saudi Arabia is in the news today, having sentenced Rozanna al-Yami to 60 lashes, but no prison term, for her involvement in the “TV sex scandal” case that has rocked Saudi Arabia this summer.

In the program, which aired in July on the Lebanese LBC satellite channel (now closed in Saudi Arabia), Mazen Abdul-Jawad appears to describe an active sex life and shows sex toys that were blurred by the station. The same court sentenced Abdul-Jawad earlier this month to five years in jail and 1,000 lashes. via NYTimes
