Two women in Saudi Arabia have been sentenced to 20 lashes after they were found to have used bad language while arguing with each other over WhatsApp.

The pair were also jailed for 10 days after the criminal court in Jeddah said they had used ‘impermissable expressions’ in their text messages.

And they have been warned if they use bad language again their punishment will be much more severe.
