Omg! Saudi Authorities to Punish 11 by Jail Term and 300 Lashes Just for Having a Beachside Party

The police in Saudi Arabia

In what is considered rather outrageous, 11 people are set to face a grueling punishment just for organizing a beachside party in Saudi Arabia.

Six women and five men have been jailed and sentenced to 300 lashes after holding a beach party in Saudi Arabia. The group were charged with 'obscenity' after police found alcohol and indecent pictures during a raid on a villa in the city of Jedda.

Some were drunk and resisted arrest after officers from the vice squad were called to the property following complaints from neighbours.

The group were initially given jail sentences ranging from eight days to a year and 150 lashes, it was reported by Breitbart.

But their prison terms were increased and their flogging sentence raised to 300 lashes after a failed appeal.

Under Saudi law, women are not allowed to mingle with men unless they are related.

Saudi Arabia has some of the strictest Islamic laws in the world. Drinking is banned and women must cover themselves in public and not mix with the opposite sex.
