A Saudi court sentenced a local man to one day in jail on charges of slapping his wife on the face twice.

The wife had presented a medical report showing her husband has also punched her in the shoulder and had beaten her many times but the man denied such charges.

"He admitted that he slapped her but did not beat her up as she claimed. The judge decided to jail him for one day and made him write a statement not to hit her again," Al Madina' daily said in a report from the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah.
