The Saudis have 'announced a review' of the law and the UN is "deeply concerned" (I'm telling you if I had a nickel for everytime a liberal said they were deeply concerned I would be rich).
From the Telegraph.
The country is a patriarchal society that applies a form of Sunni Islam that gives fathers the right to wed their sons and daughters to whoever they deem fit.
But Justice Minister Mohamed al-Issa said his ministry wanted "to put an end to arbitrariness by parents and guardians in marrying off minor girls". He said the regulations would "preserve the rights, fending off blights to end the negative aspects of underage girls' marriage".
A court in the Saudi town of Unaiza upheld the marriage of the Saudi girl to a 58-year-old man on the condition he does not have sex with her until she reaches puberty.
