News from Nowhere

'Six Saudis have reportedly been jailed in connection with an attack on actors taking part in a play critical of hardline religious attitudes.

Reports from Riyadh say one person was sentenced to two months in jail, while five others received shorter sentences.

A number of others were acquitted, according to the reports, which have not been officially confirmed.

The play, in a cultural festival last November, had to be abandoned after Islamists stormed the theatre.'

Where is Tony Blair when you need him to explain that Saudi Arabia is a friend of the civilised world and that 'they have their culture, their way of life'?
