Prince Nayef to Let Saudi Women Take Part in Games, Hayat Says

Prince Nayef, Saudi Arabia’s interior minister and crown prince, agreed to permit female Saudi athletes to take part in the 2012 Olympics in London, al-Hayat reported, citing a report submitted to a Shoura Council panel.

Approval applies to sports that suit the nature and decency of women and don’t conflict with Islamic law teachings, the London-based newspaper said, citing a report prepared by the kingdom’s General Presidency of Youth Welfare.

The London Games start July 27. Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Brunei haven’t included female athletes in their delegations.
