Wife seeks divorce over TV music channel

A newly wed Saudi woman is seeking a divorce from her husband after he beat her up because she changed over a TV music channel, a newspaper in the Gulf Kingdom reported on Thursday.

The woman told her Saudi husband that she was “sick” of his addiction to the “Ghinwa” TV show which involves Arabic songs and dancing by several young girls, the online Kabar Arabic language daily said in a report from the eastern region.

“She told him that she would change it over but he warned her that he would break her hand if she does so,” the paper said.

“She thought he was not serious so she went ahead and turned the TV to another channel…he got mad and broke her hand…the wife was hospitalized but she has filed a divorce case.”
