Jail for Saudi cameraphone rapes

Two Saudi Arabian men have been found guilty of filming the rape of a teenage girl, in a case which has shocked the conservative Kingdom.   The men used their mobile telephone cameras to film their Nigerian driver sexually assaulting the girl.   They then distributed the video via their telephones before being arrested.

The Saudi government initially banned the sale of telephones equipped with cameras, citing fears about privacy, but the ruling was recently overturned.

One defendant, 27-year-old Barjass bin Faleh, was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment and 1,200 lashes, while the other, Abdulrahman bin Haif, 22, was sentenced to two years and 200 lashes, a leading Saudi daily newspaper reported.

The driver is reported to have been sentenced to six years jail and 600 lashes.
