DUBAI — Saudi police said on Tuesday they had detained a 14-year-old boy who was filmed dancing to the 1990s hit song “Macarena” at a street crossing in the coastal city of Jeddah, in a clip that was widely shared on social media.

The teenager, whose name and nationality were not given, was being questioned because he had shown “improper public behaviour” and disrupted traffic, a statement from Mecca police said. It was not clear whether he would be formally charged.

In the 45-second video, a teenager wearing a striped t-shirt, grey sports shorts and brightly-coloured shoes strides to the middle of a crosswalk. He starts dancing to the catchy tune in front of five lanes of cars stopped at a traffic light.

Earlier this month police arrested and released a Saudi singer for using the ‘dab’ move in an onstage dance. Abdallah al-Shahani appeared on a viral video performing the dance at a music festival in the city of Taif in southwestern Saudi Arabia.

The dance had been banned in the Kingdom by the National Committee for Drug Control, on the grounds that it advocated or encouraged drug abuse, according to Saudi media.

Saudis are among the most active users of social media in the Arab world, using the Internet as an outlet for debate and interaction in their deeply conservative society.

BELFAST – A woman, fed up with searching for the perfect man, has married the ghost of a 300-year-old pirate and says he’s her ‘soulmate’.

Amanda, 45, who searched for her soulmate in the afterlife after failing to connect with any real-life men, has married a Haitian pirate named Jack who died in the 1700s.

Her love affair with Jack, who was a thief on the high seas in the 1700s until he was caught and executed, began one night in 2014 when she was lying in bed and felt his energy appear beside her.

Astonishingly, after years of romance, Amanda managed to hire a registrar and journey into international waters where she could legally marry the smitten spirit.

Amanda Teague, mother of five from her ex-husband, even used a spiritual medium at the wedding to allow him to say “I do” during the ceremony on a boat off the Irish coast where her friends and family attended.

Like any ordinary couple, Amanda says, the couple live a fairly normal life; including having rows, going on dates, and even having an active sexual life.
