In a shocking case in Kuwait, a woman reported earlier last week that her husband tried to sell her to his friend for 200 Kuwaiti Dinars ($650).

The wife reported her husband to the police, claiming she was being forced into unethical acts in exchange for money.

In her statement to the police, she alleged that she had received a phone call from her husband, asking her to come back to "discuss things".

Thinking he wanted to work through their marital problems, she returned home, only to find her husband's friend waiting for her. She then discovered that her husband’s friend was waiting to have sex with her in exchange for money he had paid her husband.

Authorities have arrested both the husband and his friend, and they have been referred to prosecution.
