A Saudi man has married a schoolgirl, her teacher and her principal, as well as an educational supervisor who oversees the same school.

The 50-year-old man from the Jazan region, lives just down the road from the school, Saudi-based daily newspaper Okaz reported.

The age of the girl was not reported.

A colleague of the teacher and principal told the paper school staff were astonished to learn about the marriages, but said the principal treats her fellow wives the same as she does other women at the school.

"The matter to the teachers and students is funny and weird, who found it an issue of gossip during the recesses and breaks between the periods of the school days," she said, according to a translation from the Khaleej Times.
