5 women were arrested for driving in Saudi Arabia, after almost two weeks of a hands-off approach by the authorities. Did they just have a delayed reaction, or did the Saudi religious police hesitate because they thought women would get bored of increased autonomy and independence?
Four young women were arrested in a single car being driven by one of them in the Dorat Al Aroos area of Jeddah yesterday morning. The religious police, also known as the ... Read More
