PRINCE: WOMEN MUST DRIVE

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

RIYADH: A Saudi prince has called for an “ur­gent” end to his coun­try’s ban on women driv­ing. “Stop the de­bate: Time for women to drive,” Prince Al­waleed bin Talal said on Twit­ter. Al­waleed is an un­usu­ally out­spo­ken mem­ber of the Saudi royal fam­ily who holds no po­lit­i­cal posts but chairs King­dom Hold­ing Co, in­ter­ests of which in­clude US bank­ing gi­ant Cit­i­group. He is a long­time ad­vo­cate of women’s rights in the king­dom, which has some of the world’s tight­est re­stric­tions on women. – AFP
