Sudan police arrest models after fashion show

Sudanese police briefly detained more than 20 models, make-up artists and designers after a rare mixed-sex fashion show in Khartoum, participants said on Saturday.

Amateur models taking part in the “Sudanese Next Top Model Fashion Show” told Reuters they were rounded up late on Thursday by Sudan’s public order police, a body known for its crackdowns on indecent dress and drinking in the Muslim north.
