RIYADH, Saudi Arabia A Saudi court on Saturday convicted a female journalist for her involvement in a TV show, in which a Saudi man publicly talked about sex, and sentenced her to 60 lashes.
Rozanna al-Yami is believed to be the first Saudi woman journalist to be given such a punishment. The charges against her included involvement in the preparation of the program and advertising the segment on the Internet.
Abdul-Rahman al-Hazza, the spokesman of the Ministry of Culture and Information, told The Associated Press he had no details of the sentencing and could not comment on it.
In the program, which aired in July on the Lebanese LBC satellite channel, Mazen Abdul-Jawad appears to describe an active sex life and shows sex toys that were blurred by the station. The same court sentenced Abdul-Jawad earlier this month to five years in jail and 1,000 lashes.

maybe change the name to “Bold Red Lines” instead.
talking about sex in open public - but then getting beaten...uhmmm
is it me - or is Islam really twisted?
In a perfect world Caty Did would be shredded.
That damned George Bush! This is his fault somehow.
There are people here in the US that would consider this a perk of the job. Especially in San Fran.
But Islam is STILL the religion of peace. . .
religion of peace at it again.....
A month or so ago, while watching a tv program with my six-year-old grandson who is very intelligent, he said "Grandpa, when this program is over I'll have a few questions to ask you about erectile dysfunction."
It's getting tricky watching television with children.
Yeah, and Christian Conservatives are the Taliban of the US..... per Tingly Matthews
If it’s Bush’s fault, then why was he the champion of the phrase “Religion of Peace”?
Please note that the American taxpayer keeps this regime in power.
No doubt. Now, when watchinng TV with my kids, I turn the channel during commercials. The worst commercials are the E.D. commercials and commercials for other TV programs such as Desperate Housewives.
I expect to see an outraged press release from NOW within minutes/s
Yes it is partly Bush’s fault. He propped up this Islamo-fascist regime for his term. It is worthy of note that MOST of the 911 hijackers came from this country.
How ironic that US liberals defend Muslim behavior, while chastising Christians’ desire to home school.
Who is Caty Did?
Hummm... I could get me a new Czar who could order 50 lashes for Rush & Sean! ...outlaw Christmas & Easter.
You have stumbled on the truth. It IS his fault, at least in part. George Bush (using our blood and treasure) propped up the Islamo-fascist Saudi regime for eight years.
