Diplomatic relations between Tehran and Riyadh soured following the January 2016 execution of Shiite cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr in Saudi Arabia, an outspoken critic of the Saudi monarchy. The street was otherwise deserted. Now, nearly 18 months later, that report has become famous.

"These are the demands of the liberal ignorant community: a naked woman, a co-ed movie theatre, and music and dance". The statement, which was marked as urgent, added that the videos were being monitored because of laws pertaining to "information crimes". This has fueled frustration and suspicion.

In Saudi Arabia, women cannot drive or travel outside the country without a family member or guardian, among other restrictions that greatly limit their participation in social life and in the public sphere.

In North Korea, locals are likewise expected to dress conservatively or risk attracting unwanted attention from government "fashion police". "We have solved the problem", read the tweet, shared nearly 2000 times. Moreover, it is a rule that women should keep their heads covered.

The outcome: she has been arrested, according to Saudi state television. The offense that sparked her arrest was wearing "immodest" clothing that contradicts the conservative dress code instituted across the primarily Islamic country.

Saudi news media reported on Tuesday that the woman, known only by her given name, Khulood, had been arrested and turned over to prosecutors.

The woman's release from detention without charge is seen as unusual.

However, she said that someone else posted them online.

The Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice on Monday said it had opened an investigation with "competent authorities". She rushed to safety.

The government of Saudi Arabia announced last week girls would be allowed for the first time to play sports in public schools. Premoli has pursued legal action against the kingdom in U.S. courts.

May has refused to budge on the report.

Progressive members of Saudi society, like writer Amal al-Hazzani, are saying that the Arabs will have to get used to such breaches if they want to promote tourism.

With more than half of the population of Saudi Arabia under 25-years-old, the country's 30-year-old heir to the throne, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has tried to modernise the country.
