The Saudis defy tradition by taking the wheel

The Saudi authorities had deployed dozens of police to prevent religious women to meet their challenge: driving a car. But about 70 women as witnesses said, were driving in different parts of the country and most of them were accompanied by a relative.

On Facebook, last month, a group called precisely the women to take control of their cars was closed. However, the social network Twitter is wiping out thousands of messages from those who have dared to take the car on Friday.
