Several restaurant in Saudi Arabia, announced that they are prohibiting single women from entering their restaurants because they cause too much drama.

Women’s rights organizations are blasting the decision, saying that the move is a violation of a woman’s basic human rights.

Members of the National Society for Human Rights (NSHR) called on the restaurants to remove the signs, which state “single women are not allowed.”

NSHR spokesperson Khalid Al-Fakhri said that the posters were placed by the owners of the restaurant and not by the modesty police.

"These signs are against the law and reflect the personal opinions of the restaurant owners," Al-Fakhri said. "Restaurants should come up with alternative solutions if their customers behave inappropriately," he added.

"We put up these signs because we saw single women flirting with male customers," one restaurant owner said. Some locals support the ban, saying that women behave terribly in restaurants.

“Some women smoke cigarettes, prompting the modesty police to shut down the restaurant for the night. They cause too much drama,” one man said.

“Women play with their phones and disturb other diners,” another man complained.

The two women, both of Halifax, denied causing intentional cruelty. Staff members have told the court that they witnessed some of the abusive incidents.

The court was told that the teacher and her assistant stuck sticking notes on the child, tied their shoes together with a rope, kicked her chair and hid her doll.

An investigation by the school and the police began after the girl told her mother that the teacher tied her to a chair with duct tape so that she shouldn’t move.

The child had difficulty breathing and the whole class laughed at her, the court heard. The girl was stuck to the chair for about 10 minutes.

Man who dismembered girlfriend to avoid jail busted after leaving 1 piece of evidence on body

By: Tanya Malhotra

A man was sentenced to life in prison for killing his gorgeous girlfriend.

The incident began as an argument over a financial matter between the man and his much younger girlfriend, but it quickly turned violent.

44-year-old Alejandro Reynoso of Argentina, killed 22-year-old Solange Aguirre, who is the mother of his two children.

He then beheaded and dismembered her so that she cannot be identified if she was ever found. However, he forgot that she had a specific tattoo on her back, which helped police identify her body.

According to police, Aguirre went to visit Reynoso, to discuss child support payments, but her former boyfriend erupted in anger and killed her.

The man then took some of the body parts, traveled to a small island called Entre Rios Delta, and buried them.

A fisherman who saw Reynoso from afar digging a hole and burying something, alerted police.

The authorities conducted an investigation and discovered the bag with the body parts.

Police spokesperson Antigono Robles told a court that it was impossible to determine the identity of the body by the standard method of fingerprints.

However, they found a tattoo on the body that was two initials representing Aguirre’s two children, Andrea and Luigi.

Reynoso apparently missed this small but meaningful tattoo, and this helped police link the body to the woman whose family had filed a missing persons report.

Now, two years after the murder, he was found guilty and was sentenced to life in prison.
