The Barbaric Mutawwas: Saudi schoolgirl gets 90 lashes for cell phone

A Saudi court has sentenced a 13-year-old Saudi schoolgirl to 90 lashes and two months in prison after she was caught with a mobile phone equipped with a camera.
The girl, who has not been named, is sentenced to 90 lashed in her school in front of her classmates followed by two months in detention.
The sentences come after she was caught with a cell phone equipped with camera. The gadget is banned in girls' schools.......
