Saudi Arabian Model Arrested After Being Filmed Wearing Miniskirt In Public (Photos)
Saudi Arabian model has been arrested after she posted video of herself in a mini-skirt and crop-top.
The woman, reportedly a model called Khulood, enraged the country’s religious police after posting the clip on Snapchat of her walking around a historic fort in Ushayqir in the ultra-conservative province of Najd.
According to Saudi Arabia’s state-run TV, police in the capital, Riyadh, arrested the woman for wearing “immodest clothes” and referred her case to the country’s public prosecutor.
The footage sparked a heated debate on social media , with some calling for her arrest and others praising her “bravery”.
In Saudi Arabia women are required to wear loose fitting, full-length robes known as “abayas” in public, as well as a headscarf.
