Saudi police arrested a 12-year-old boy caught driving a mini-bus transporting school boys to their homes, a newspaper said on Tuesday.

A police car was on a routine patrol on a busy road in the eastern port of Jubail when the cops noticed that the driver is too young, ‘Makka’ Arabic language daily said.

“When they stopped the bus and checked the driver, they found that he is only 12-years-old without a driving licence. He said he has been working as a taxi for school boys and workers in that area,” the paper said.
