(Newser) – Dubai has lowered the boom—again—on travelers whose behavior runs afoul of the nation's strict morality laws by sentencing a couple to 3 months in prison for sexting. The flirty texts indicated the Indian pair, who work for Emirates airlines, intended to "commit sin," according to court documents. The messages surfaced in divorce proceedings between the woman and her estranged husband, reports the Telegraph. British travelers have recently been sent to prison for kissing in public and purportedly "having sex" on a beach.
