Saudi man 'wins' 10-yr-old in deal with her dad

Here is another gem from our friends, the Saudis. Received by email from Vick, from this Arab news source.

A 60-year old Saudi man who was set to marry a 10-year old girl—he 'won' in a bet with her father—has postponed his marriage after protests from human rights groups, press reports revealed. The fate of the little girl was decided after her father dared the elderly man to marry a second wife and teased him about being afraid of his current wife.
