Justice - Saudi Style

A rape victim was punished for violating Shoddy Arabia's laws on segregation that forbid unrelated men and women from associating with each other. She was initially sentenced to 90 lashes for being in the car of a strange man. On appeal, Arab News reports, the punishment was not reduced but increased to 200 lashes and a six-month prison sentence.

The 19-year-old woman was gang-raped 14 times in an attack in Qatif in the eastern province a year-and-a-half ago. The BBC has a report.
