Saudi bans 'odd' men’s underwear

By Staff
Saudi Arabia has banned the sale of imported men’s underwear because of their odd shape and ordered dealers to return the shipments, a newspaper in the oil-rich Gulf country reported on Wednesday.
The ministry of trade and industry said its inspectors seized newly-imported underwear in the market with “odd” shape and make in addition to plastic items used for the genitals, Sabq Arabic language daily said.
“The ministry decided to ban these items and told dealers to return the shipments to their origin,” the paper said without elaborating on those items.
