RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, March 23 (UPI) -- A Saudi man used a shopping mall's loudspeaker to announce his intention to divorce his wife, the Arabic-language Kabar newspaper said.

Kabar, which did not identify the mall, said the man was at the shopping center with his wife and three children when he saw another man hand his wife a piece of paper with his phone number, which she put into her bag, bikyamasr.com reported Friday.

The man then used the mall's loudspeaker to announce to the entire shopping center that he will be divorcing his wife, Kabar said.
