RIYADH — Judicial officials say a Saudi court has convicted four women and 11 men for mingling at a party and sentenced them to flogging and prison terms.

The men, who are between 30 and 40 years old, and three of the women, who are under the age of 30, were sentenced to an unspecified number of lashes and one or two year prison terms each.

The fourth woman, a minor, was sentenced to 80 lashes and was not sent to prison.

The ruling was handed down on Tuesday at a court in the northern town of Ha'il.

The officials say the police saw the group partying until dawn last month. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.

Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam that prohibits unrelated men and women from mingling.

No one ever specified whether the 70 virgins were women or men.

Due to the evergrowing shortage of virgins in the world you can no longer get 70. You now receive 20 virgins, 40 "slightly used young ladies", 5 sheep, and 5 priests. The sheep can also be substituted for horses if you are so inclined.

The horses ain't virgins either.
