1. Saudi fashion show doesn’t allow women so they use drones instead
A fashion show that replaced female models with drones “displays the severe restrictions women in Saudi Arabia face every day”. Organisers of the event at Jeddah Hilton hotel proudly showed off their “different approach” to showcasing designer dresses, in front of an all-male audience, on Twitter.
However, in a kingdom where women are bound by conservative rules, the flying clothes have caused a lot of mockery and outrage online. Many on social media have compared the flying clothes to a horror show, with one commenting: “It’s like a ghost film.” Another one said: “I’m dying at this fashion show in Saudi. They weren’t allowed female models.”

6. US man gets 15 years for trying to join Islamic State group
A New York man who traveled to Turkey to join the Islamic State group said Monday he thought it would be the best way to help victimized Syrians and that he never wanted to be a fighter, as prosecutors contended.
Before being sentenced to 15 years in prison for attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization, Arafat Nagi said his goal was to provide humanitarian aid.
But it was a claim U.S. District Judge Richard Arcara said he had a hard time believing after looking at Nagi's graphic and violent social media posts and a photo showing him wearing camouflage and posing with an assault-style rifle, his face, except for his eyes, covered in black.

9. Liberal security bill clears key hurdle over objections from many opposition MPs, softens anti-terror laws
OTTAWA — The Liberal government's sweeping national security bill has cleared a key legislative hurdle despite the concerns of the two main opposition parties.
MPs voted 168 to 125 Monday to approve the bill in principle and adopt changes made during an early committee review.
The bill fleshes out Liberal campaign promises to soften contentious anti-terrorism measures brought in by the Harper government after a gunman stormed Parliament Hill in October 2014.
However, the Conservatives say the Liberal bill will make it harder for security agencies to do their work, while New Democrats argue it gives agencies licence to impinge on civil liberties — prompting opposition MPs from both parties to vote against the legislation.
