MANILA - The sex video featuring cosmetic surgeon Hayden Kho and sexy actress Katrina Halili has reached Saudi Arabia.

Emer Lapitan, an engineer working in Al-Khobar, is one of the many Filipinos offered by Indian national traders with a DVD copy of the sex video.

Lapitan said the sex videos are being sold in Al-Khobar for 10 Saudi Riyals or P116.

"Ako ay nilapitan ng isang Indiano at pinagbentahan ng kopya ng kanilang scandal (An Indian national approached me and offered me their video scandal)," the Filipino engineer told ABS-CBN Middle East News Bureau.

He said the Indian national could have downloaded the video from the Internet and burned it in DVDs.

The Middle East News Bureau team has confirmed the proliferation of the Hayden-Katrina videos. The news team took footage of an Indian national selling the videos in a restaurant in Al-Khobar.

Andrew Santos, an IT manager in Dammam, said the proliferation of the sex videos has brought international shame to Filipinos.

"Degrading ang nangyari na 'yon, lalung-lalo na tayong mga Pilipino na natuturingang Catholic Country sa Asia (The incident is degrading for Filipinos, especially that the Philippines is considered the only Catholic country in Asia)," Santos said.

A Filipina teacher, Sonia Lapitan, meanwhile, defended Halili for being sexually involved with Kho. She believes Kho was able to lure Halili into bed because she was really in love with the cosmetic surgeon. -- Florante Catanus, ABS-CBN Middle East News Bureau
