Saudi films himself teaching daughter driving

A Saudi man defied a ban on female driving and filmed himself teaching his daughter how to drive a car in public in the conservative Kingdom.

A one-minute YouTube film showed Abdullah Al Kaak instructing his daughter Dalal how to drive a car as she sat behind the wheel and drove on busy roads.

Sada newspaper quoted him as saying he decided to teach his daughter how to drive because he does not mind her getting a driving licence.

Saudi women are set to take to the streets and drive cars on October 26 in a fresh campaign intended to push the government to lift the age-long ban.
