Saudi women protest... quietly

Women campaigners in Saudi Arabia are filming themselves walking silently in the street in an attempt to claim the right to drive.

In an online campaign they are protesting against restrictions which mean they cannot do everyday things in the absence of a male guardian.

Video journalists: Suniti Singh and Alma Hassoun
