'Gay club' raided and shut in Saudi

By Staff

Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police shut a health club after seizing five local gays in a raid triggered by a tip-off about the club’s “suspect ed activities,” a newspaper in the Gulf Kingdom reported on Tuesday.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the most influential law enforcement authority in the world’s dominant oil exporter, raided the club in the capital Riyadh and arrested the five gays.

“During the raid, they seized five gays, who possessed condoms…some of the condoms contained semen…..the authorities also decided to shut the club permanently,” Kabar newspaper said.
