Australia’s ABC News reports [via Free Republic]:
“A man begging at a mosque in Yemen was exposed as not being so destitute as he pretended when his mobile started ringing inopportunely. Yemeni news agency Saba said the embarrassed man beat a quick retreat after worshippers heard his phone ring inside his bag.
“There are only about five telephones, both land-lines and mobiles, for every 100 people in Yemen, one of the poorest Arab countries.”
Hey, I think I saw that guy in downtown San Francisco!
