It’s about time! School girls in Saudi Arabia can now participate in organized sports without breaking any laws. The Saudi government announced it this month: private girls’ schools are allowed to hold sport activities in accordance with the rules of Sharia law.

His exact (-ish) words were (as translated and quoted by Japanese media): "In the circumstances in which bullets are flying like rain and wind, the soldiers are running around at the risk of losing their lives.
