Saudi Arabia’s religious police raided a house and arrested several local men dancing during a birthday party, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

Acting on a tip-off, members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice stormed into the house in the Central Saudi town of Buraydah and rounded up the men, in their 20s, 'Ajel' said.

“They were all arrested after they were caught dancing to loud music. They were also accused of making indecent moves while dancing,” the paper said.
