Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Jan.21 (ANI): A teenage girl in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 90 lashes and two months in prison for taking a cell phone to school, the Daily Mail reports.

The 13-year-old will be flogged in front of her classmates, as she was reportedly hiding a cell phone in class, breaking strict Saudi regulations banning their use in girls' schools.

Saudi Arabia is the world's leading country in the use of torture-by-flogging, and religious police keep a close watch over public behaviour. (ANI)
