Asharq Alawsat writes (via Chawed Rosin) that two members of Saudi Arabia’s religious police, officially known as “Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice”, were verbally assaulted and sprayed with pepper gas by two “inappropriately-dressed females” at a market place in the Eastern province Dr. Mohamed bin Marshood al-Marshood:

According to Dr. Al-Marshood, the two commission members approached the girls in order to “politely” advise and guide them regarding their inappropriate clothing.

Consequently, the two girls started verbally abusing the commission members, which then lead to one of the girls pepper-spraying them in the face as the other girl filmed the incident on her mobile phone, while continuing to hurl insults at them.

I was browsing in YouTube to find some adequate video footage but I was not very surprised that I found none of this incident. The girls would obviously either not have had a chance to post it or they were too scared to post it.

Instead I stumbled into an interesting trailer of a documentary: Saudi Arabia – under the veil
