Saudi press told to stop printing pictures of women

Independent reported Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has told the country's newspapers to stop publishing pictures of women as they could lead young men astray.

It apparently is easy to lead Saudia youth astray. Does this mean leading them astray from their praying to Allah, or astray from their preparing for Jihad?
..... The authorities indefinitely postponed a move to replace male shop assistants with women at lingerie shops.
Talk about leading someone astray. Maybe the Union of Male Shop Assistants complained they were losing their jobs.
The proposal, offered as evidence of progress on women's rights, has been quietly shelved amid claims that shopowners need more time to manage the transition.

AllahPundit blogged Sounds like the reports of reform have been greatly exaggerated.
