BBC: Saudi government investigating video of woman in short skirt and crop top

The BBC reports that public opinion appears sharply divided in Saudi Arabia after a video surfaced of a woman wearing clothing deemed unacceptable in that country.

The women, a model called “Khulood”, shared the clip of her walking around a historic fort in Ushayqir.

The footage sparked a heated debate on social media, with some calling for her arrest for breaking the conservative Muslim country’s strict dress code.

Other Saudis came to the woman’s defence, praising her “bravery”. …

The religious police, the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, meanwhile wrote on Twitter that it had been made aware of the video and was in contact with the relevant authorities.
