Six FEMEN activists rally in front of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia embassy in Paris, France and stage a protest against the flogging of Saudi blogger Raif Badawi. Badawi has been recently sentenced to ten years in jail and 1,000 lashes. He received 50 last Friday and was supposed to receive 50 more today but the punishment of this Friday was cancelled due to "medical reasons" according to his family.
