Saudi Arabia: Dozens Arrested by Religious Police

MECCA – A large group of men “wearing improper clothing” was arrested for an alleged flirtation with women outside a shopping mall in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the Associated Press reported February 23. On Feb. 21, Saudi Arabia’s religious police began to interrogate the men, stating that they had been listening to pop music and wearing improper clothing. At least 57 were arrested. The suspects must prove they were not flirting with women, or risk having to stand trial.
