Female death on campus spurs Saudi debate
A Saudi newspaper says university staff in Riyadh would not allow paramedics who arrived at the scene to immediately enter a female-only area of the campus to assist a student who suffered a heart attack and later died.

 

Okaz newspaper reported on Thursday that administrators impeded efforts by the male paramedics to save the student's life at the King Saud University. The paper says staff took an hour before allowing the paramedics in on Wednesday. (AP)
