The New Zealand Herald - - WORLD -

Saudi Arabia will al­low women into three sports sta­di­ums — in Riyadh, Jed­dah and Dam­man — for the first time from next year, au­thor­i­ties said yes­ter­day. The king­dom, which has some of the world’s tight­est re­stric­tions on women, has long barred women from sports are­nas by strict rules on se­gre­ga­tion of the sexes in pub­lic.
