RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- A Saudi man divorced his wife after she allegedly videoed their wedding night and left the recording in their hotel room, news website Okaz al-Youm reported.

The bride, whose name wasn't reported, allegedly placed a camera in the couple's hotel room without informing her new husband and recorded more than 50 minutes of their intimate interactions, Gulf News reported Thursday.
