Saudi Arabia: 40 Lashes for Flirting
A young Saudi man was giving 40 lashes in front of all the female college students yesterday in Jizan (south of Saudi Arabia).
His "crime" was flirting with some female college students and he was bothering them when they were going home.
Most of the people in Jizan are Ismalies (Shiite sect). They are ruled by Wahhabi Sunnis, who humiliate people and punish them by the harshest way possible.
