Saudi woman held over affair with Lanka expat

Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police arrested a divorced local woman for having an affair with a Sri Lankan man after confessing she was pregnant, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice seized the woman with the Sri Lankan private driver at his room in the eastern province of Ihsa, 'Sabq' said.

“She confessed to having a relationship for nearly four months with the Sri Lankan driver and that she was pregnant,” it said. “They also found obscene pictures of the woman in the driver’s mobile phone.”
