(CNN) Saudi authorities have arrested an Arab man who appeared in video having breakfast with a female work colleague.
The Ministry of Labor and Social Development said the man was arrested for appearing in an “offensive video” and cited violations of rules including those “regulating women’s placement at work.”
Local news platform SaudiNews50 said Tuesday that the woman was arrested as well. CNN couldn’t confirm her arrest.
Authorities did not reveal their nationalities. The man speaks in an Egyptian dialect in
the video and it was not clear if the woman was Saudi.
