Saudi cleric slammed over fatwa on women cashiers

Don't stand in line while you're on vacation. Buy skip-the-line tickets ahead of time.

Saudi Arabia’s most senior religious leader has ordered a conservative cleric to stop giving unauthorized edicts after his call for boycotting a supermarket chain that employs women as cashiers.

Sheik Youssef al-Ahmed had urged people not to shop at Panda Supermarket because women there work in jobs that allow for the mingling of the sexes. Al-Ahmed says this is a violation of Islamic law.
