    A Sudanese woman who is due to appear in court in Khartoum says she faces up to 40 lashes for wearing trousers.

    The woman, Lubna Hussein - a former journalist who now works for the United Nations - has invited journalists and observers to the trial.

    She was arrested in a restaurant in the capital with other women earlier this month for wearing "indecent" clothing.

    She said 10 of the women arrested, including non-Muslims, later each received 10 lashes and a fine of $100.

    The trial of a Sudanese woman charged with wearing "indecent" clothing has been adjourned, but will continue after she decided to waive her immunity.

    A Khartoum judge told Lubna Ahmed Hussein she could have immunity because she works for the UN.

    But Ms Hussein, who claims she was arrested for wearing trousers, said she wanted carry on with the trial because she wanted to get the law changed.

    Update: Protests at Sudan woman's trial

    Source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8182658.stm

    Police have fired tear gas at supporters of a Sudanese woman charged with wearing "indecent clothing", shortly after her trial was postponed.

    Lubna Ahmed Hussein says she was arrested for wearing trousers.

    She has adopted a defiant attitude, urging authorities to try her although she faces up to 40 lashes in public.

    Earlier, she told the BBC she was not afraid, saying: "Flogging is not pain, flogging is an insult to humans, women and religions."

    Ms Hussein has resigned from a UN job that would have given her immunity to take on the case - indicating she wants it to become a test case for women's rights in Sudan.

    "If the court's decision is that I be flogged, I want this flogging in public," she told the BBC's Today programme.

    But Ms Hussein's trial in the capital, Khartoum, was delayed for a month after the judge said he needed to verify if she was immune from prosecution because of her former position at the UN.

    After her hearing was adjourned, Ms Hussein said the authorities wanted to delay her trial until the fuss around it went away.
