Woman who walked in short skirt arrested in Saudi Arabia
A model who was seen wearing a short skirt and crop top in a small Saudi Arabian town has been arrested.
The model, named only as 'Khulood', sparked controversy on social media after she shared a video on Snapchat walking through the heritage village of Ushaiqer dressed in a short skirt, black crop top and sneakers, the Daily Mail reported.
An arrest warrant issued by Riyadh police and shared by several Twitter users shows that the woman had been arrested on Monday for 'disrespecting and violating the teachings of Islam'.
Saudi state TV later reported that a woman had been arrested by authorities for dressing 'indecently'.
Foreign and local women in Saudi Arabia are expected to wear 'conservative' loose-fitting cloaks known as abayas.
