The Saudi Arabia Prosecution and Investigation Commission (PIC) on Tuesday questioned 11 foreigners, including five Indonesians, on their alleged involvement in prostitution in Al-Khansa, Mecca, during the Hajj and Umrah periods.
“[The 11 suspects] were arrested after being followed for several days,” a local official said as quoted bytempointeraktif.com.
The other six are all men from Bangladesh.
Mecca Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Zaki Al-Rihaili said all 11 suspects would be sent to Al-Maabdah Police before being sent to the PIC for investigation and then to court.
Police said the prostitutes had worked with security guards who were paid SR 200 (US$56.50) per night for their discretion.
