4 arrested in Egypt for ‘Harlem shake’

Story Topics

Four students were arrested in Cairo on Saturday for emulating a viral dance craze called the “Harlem shake.”

The pharmaceutical students had removed most of their clothes and videotaped themselves performing the pelvis-thrusting dance, a police official said.

Neighborhood residents started to assault the students, who are accused of committing “a scandalous act,” the official added.

Egypt has strict public indecency laws, AFP reports.
