Boy lashed near girls' college for dating

By Staff

A Saudi boy caught dating a female college student was lashed at the entrance of the college in line with a court sentence in the conservative Gulf Kingdom.

The boy was ordered flogged by the judge after he was caught red handed with a girl from the college in the northern Saudi town of Rafha.

Newspapers said the lashing was watched by the college’s students but they did not mention his age or say how many lashes he got.

Circumcision goes wrong

A man practicing circumcision without authorisation skinned the genitals of a little boy by mistake during a circumcision operation in the Gulf Kingdom.

Doctors treating the baby found that the wound caused by that man needs a long time to be healed and could affect his virility in the future.

“The wrong circumcision operation performed by that man caused the baby to totally lose the skin of his genitals. He was rushed to hospital for treatment but doctors said the wound could affect his marriage life when he grows up,” Okaz daily said in a report from the northern town of Turaif.
