Two young Saudi men who informed they had been infected by Aids told authorities they believe they had the virus after sleeping with two Syrian female beggars.
The two men, aged 18 and 25 years, were undergoing a routine medical check-up at a government hospital in the southern Saudi province of Asir when doctors discovered both of them are suffering from the Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome.
“The two told authorities that they had slept with two Syrian women who were begging in their area…they said the two women agreed to sleep with them for money,” the Arabic language daily Sabq said.
