Model arrested in Saudi Arabia after being filmed wearing miniskirt and crop-top in public



Police in Saudi Arabia have arrested a young woman who posted a snapchat 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 of her walking around a historic fort in Ushayqir in the ultra-conservative province of Najd.

Saudi Arabia's state-run TV reported that police in the capital, Riyadh, arrested the woman for wearing "immodest clothes" and referred her case to the country's public prosecutor.


In Saudi Arabia women are required to wear loose fitting, full-length robes known as "abayas" in public, as well as a headscarf.
