According to the Bikya Masr website, a Saudi court sentenced a local woman to 50 lashes for cursing, following an argument with a friend. The two Saudi women involved, aged 33 and 31 years, had decided to go out with their children for a weekend night but differed on where to go.

“An argument ensued and the two women decided to split … one of them later sent a text to her friend’s mobile phone swearing at her,” reported Kabar, a daily Saudi newspaper. “The other woman went to court and showed the judge the message … although that woman said she was joking, the court ordered her lashed 50 times.”

Kabar reported that the court has given the convicted and sentenced woman the right to appeal.
