Saudi prince Alwaleed driven by daughter as driving ban lifted


Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, an early advocate of women driving, released a video of his daughter driving shortly after midnight on Sunday. ‘Saudi Arabia has just entered the 21st century,’ he told his granddaughters in the back seat. Women across Saudi Arabia took to the roads at midnight after the lifting of the world’s last ban on female drivers, long seen as an emblem of women’s repression in the deeply conservative kingdom.
