*Saudi daily Okaz reports that an unidentified 35-year-old woman is facing trial for driving herself to the hospital following a seizure. The unmarried woman was indicted for illegally driving, and will go on trial in September. She was arrested while on her way to the hospital after experiencing intestinal bleeding, and explained to police that she drove herself because of a lack of public transport, and the fact that she does not have a male driver on staff.
