Saudi Arabia's religious police have arrested 10 "emo" women for allegedly causing a disturbance in a coffee shop, Al-Yaum newspaper has reported.
The coffee shop owner complained to police after the young women's fashion and make-up, in an "emo" theme, apparently began disturbing other clients.
The religious police then called their parents to come and collect the women, and to sign pledges that the girls would not repeat their offensive un-Islamic behaviour and dress.
According to recent reports, growing numbers of urban young Saudi women are latching on to similar fashion trends popular taken from Japan, Europe and the Americas.
Some of the stereotypes of the trend include skinny black jeans, tennis shoes, colourful T-shirts bearing band-names, heavy make-up and sharply chopped or coloured hair-dos.
While Saudi women normally must appear in public shrouded by all-black abayas and headscarves, some daringly open their abayas in places such as malls and coffee shops to reveal more trendy outfits underneath.
Wonder which trend-rock will infiltrate the malls of the Middle East next? Probably indie.
