Saudi Arabia upholds 'sex boast' conviction
A Saudi Arabian appeals court has upheld a sentence of five years in jail and 1,000 lashes for a man who boasted on TV of his sex life, reports say.
Between the above and the below, things can get complicated in Saudi Arabia:
Campaigners in Saudi Arabia have urged women there to begin a two-week boycott of lingerie shops with male staff. They say it is a contradiction that in such a conservative, Islamic country, women have to give their underwear sizes to men they do not know.
Reem Asaad, an economics professor from Jeddah, organised the boycott through her Facebook page, as public protests are illegal in Saudi Arabia. Islamic scholars have given their backing to the campaign.
"I am calling for salesmen to be replaced with saleswomen", Ms Asaad was quoted as saying by AFP news agency.
