300 Lashes And A Year In Prison For Holding Beachside Party In Saudi Arabia

Six women and five men have been jailed and sentenced to 300 lashes after holding a drunken beach party in Saudi Arabia. The group were charged with ‘obscenity’ after police found alcohol and indecent pictures during a raid on a villa in the city of Jedda. Some were drunk and resisted arrest after officers from the vice squad were called to the property following complaints from neighbours.
