Saudi Arabian authorities have detained a woman who wore a skirt and a crop top in a social media video in Ushayqir, CNN reports.
The woman told Riyadh authorities that, “the viral videos were published by an account attributed to her without her knowledge,” according to a police statement.
The statement also said the woman’s case was referred to the general prosecution department in the Saudi capital.
On Sunday, the spokesperson for the Presidency of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (religious police) said the group was on the case, and would be taking, “necessary steps” over the video of a, “girl in offensive clothing.”
The video showed the woman walking along an empty street in Ushayqir, according to the police statement.
Local media say Ushayqar officials want the provincial governor and police to punish the woman.
Ushayqir is the birthplace of Wahhabism, a pervasive, ultra-conservative Islamic tradition that Saudi Arabia has exported all over the world and continually enforces.
