A WOMAN who defied a Saudi ban on female drivers has died in a car crash. The woman died instantly and her female passenger was taken to hospital. There are no more details about the accident, which follows a Facebook-inspired protest movement last year against the ban. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where females are not allowed to drive. Several women have been arrested for defying the ban. One was sentenced to 10 lashes despite holding an international licence.
