    Best to leave your camera phone behind when visiting Saudi Arabia

    Wedding snaps earn Saudi guest a beating

    A furious Saudi bride has beaten up a woman who photographed her with a mobile phone camera at her wedding party, a local newspaper reports.

    The bride "beat up the woman, completely destroyed her phone and pulled her by the hair in front of a big crowd of guests" for taking pictures in the women-only section of the wedding at Taif, in western Saudi Arabia, Al-Jazirah daily said on Sunday.

    The bride was applauded by guests for her "vigilance", the paper added. Women and men are usually segregated at wedding parties in the deeply conservative Muslim country, allowing women to remove their veils without being seen by men.

    Saudi Arabia has officially banned mobile phones with cameras but they are widely used in the Gulf state and several ministries have appealed to the government to repeal the ban.
