Saudi female journalist to receive 60 lashes

Savages. The journalist who received the sentence was not even involved in the specific TV show that has triggered the brutal torture for her and a show guest. The guest who bragged about having sex with many women was sentenced to five years in prison and 1,000 lashes. This is yet another reason why the educated world needs to move beyond an oil-based society.

A Saudi court sentenced a female journalist Saturday to 60 lashes for her work on a controversial Arabic-language TV show that aired an episode in which a man bragged about his sex life, two sources told CNN.

The court in Jeddah also imposed a two-year travel ban on Rosanna Al-Yami, according to a Saudi Information Ministry official, who could not be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media. The ban prevents her from traveling outside Saudi Arabia.
