SAUDI ARABIA: Man Sentenced To 500 Lashes And 5 Years In Prison For Gay Sex

A Saudi court has sentenced a man accused of having gay sex to 500 lashes and five years in prison.
The 27 year-old man, who was arrested by the kingdom’s religious police, was also convicted of publishing photos on the internet and on mobile phones of himself wearing women’s underwear, the newspaper reported without giving his name. The court fined him 50,000 riyals ($13,300), the newspaper said.
Hopefully this outrage will be denounced by Secretary Clinton.
