The Saudi government closed down a women’s sports and fitness center because of a home-made video that “stars” a women in body-hugging sportswear, AFP reported.
Head of sports in the kingdom Turki al-Sheikh said, “We are not going to tolerate this.” The video could corrupt public morals, in the government’s opinion.
