She wore pants.
A Sudanese woman has been jailed for a month after refusing to pay a fine for “dressing indecently” by wearing trousers, her lawyers say.
Lubna Ahmed Hussein did not want to “give the verdict any legitimacy” by paying the fine of about $200 (Â£122), her lawyer, Nabil Adib, told the BBC.
Ms Hussein, a journalist in her 30s, could have been given up to 40 lashes.
Before the verdict, she had said she wanted her trial to become a test case for women’s rights, correspondents say.
Ms Hussein had resigned from her job at the UN, which would have given her immunity.
