riad - Saudi Arabia has released a woman who was on a video in minirok after being released. 'The Saudi police released a woman after a few hours of hearing,' said the Department of Information Wednesday.
The woman had stated that the video was made public without her knowledge. No charge has been filed against her.
The only seconds of video had caused shock in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia. The images showed a young woman in mini-skirt and a tight tip that leaves a path. The scattered video released many responses, from rejection to cheering. When the state television reported on Tuesday, the woman was arrested.

For women, strict clothing regulations apply in Saudi Arabia. A long garment is required in public. Bare shoulders, arms or legs are forbidden. Exceptions made Saudi's recently to state guests. For example, Melania Trump, the wife of the American president, did not have to comply with the clothing regulations during a visit in May.
