Woman in Saudi Arabia questioned by police about breakfast with male coworker

Man arrested for sharing breakfast with woman in Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia Has Arrested a Man After an 'Offensive Video' Showed Him Sharing Breakfast With a Woman

Men and women who are not married or close relations must sit separately from each other. At one point the woman, wearing a traditional black robe covering all but her hands and eyes, feeds the man a piece of food.

The coastal city of Jeddah, where the man and the woman were arrested, has numerous upscale cafés and restaurants that don't enforce segregation.

The video was shared widely on social media. In a few hours the hashtag "Egyptian man having breakfast with a Saudi woman" received over 55 thousand tweets and has become an element of heated debate among users.

Labour ministry officials said an inspection team visited the unidentified hotel in Mecca and detained the Egyptian worker for violations, including working in a profession restricted to Saudi citizens. What seems to have enraged people more is the fact that the woman can be seen feeding the man.

After the video went viral on Sunday, local media reported that an Egyptian national was arrested and charged with failing to adhere to government regulations that stipulate a gender-segregated workplace.

It was not immediately clear if the woman in the video was arrested.

Girls folk are also no longer allowed to head about many actions with out being accompanied by a male guardian - in most cases a male relative.

"The woman should be punished first because she represents the morals of the women of the Kingdom".

Another Twitter user, Hammoud Alduhayian, said: "Developing jobs for Saudi women among foreigners is considered an explicit breakdown of customs, traditions, and values".

In Egypt, many people reacted with surprise at the outcry from Saudi Arabia and wondered how anyone could be arrested for what they regarded as an innocuous video.

Recently, Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was hailed for trying to bring in reform movement in the country.

Another said: "A man arrested in Saudi Arabia after having breakfast with a woman".
