Six women and five men have been jailed and sentenced to 300 lashes after holding a drunken 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.
Under Saudi law, women are not allowed to mingle with men unless they are related.
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.
