Woman driver and car owner arrested in Saudi Arabia

Manama: Police in Saudi Arabia are questioning four people, two men and two women, for their alleged anti-social behaviour in Al Khafji in the kingdom’s eastern province.

The case was launched after a video of a woman, wearing a man’s traditional thobe and covering her face with a man’s headdress, driving a car went viral on social media and prompted calls to the authorities to take action against those involved in it.

The probe determined that the video clip was filmed in a recreational facility in the eastern province and investigators identified the car owner, a security source said.

The proprietor of the facility was summoned and gave further details about the case, but the car owner refused to go to the police until after two days following pressure from the security agency, the source said.
