Saudi Islamic police chase woman in street

By Staff

Saudi Arabia’s feared Islamic police wreaked havoc in the streets of the Gulf Kingdom’s capital on Sunday during an exciting chase of a bare-footed woman, a newspaper reported on Monday.

Three members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice pushed their four-wheel car on the pavement and headed in the wrong direction of a busy road before they got off the vehicle and chased the woman on foot through the streets of Riyadh, Sharq Arabic language daily said.

“Hundreds of people stopped to watch the chase of the unknown woman, who was bare-footed…..the Authority members caused chaos on the roads by chasing the unknown woman,” it said.

“She kept running away, prompting them later to call in a back-up…it was an exciting chase but the crowd did not know how it ended.”
