Disruptive Saudi students convicted

A court jails five men who obstructed a university play that advocated moderation in Islam.

    In November 2006, students disrupted a play at Yemama college in Saudi Arabia

    The Saudi press did not report the the incident at the time.
     
    A later report quoted Habib al-Habib, an actor in the play, as describing the attackers as "extremists who are trying to kill moderation".
