To kvinner i Marokko på 23 og 29 år ble arrestert på vei til jobben i Agadir fordi de gikk i «umoralske» skjørt. De risikerer to års fengsel. Dommen faller 13. juli.

A market trader drew attention to what they were wearing and a crowd of merchants quickly gathered round, accusing them of wearing flimsy and ‘immoral’ clothes.

Security forces intervened, wresting the women away from the angry crowd and taking them to a police station to be charged.
