RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- Saudi King Abdullah has pardoned a teen gang-rape victim whose sentencing to prison and flogging drew international outrage.

The 19-year-old was charged with being alone with an unrelated man in a car, London's Telegraph newspaper online reported.

The unidentified woman apparently met her ex-boyfriend for the return of photographs prior to her marriage, and when they were sitting in a car together, seven Sunni men kidnapped and raped them both.
