"A Saudi woman has been arrested for defying a driving ban in the ultra-conservative kingdom, an activist said Sunday as female motorists prepared to break the traditional ban next month. Manal al-Sharif was arrested on Saturday while driving, a day after she posted footage on the video-sharing website YouTube showing her driving in the Eastern Province city of Al-Khobar."
