'Sudanese Next Top Model Fashion Show' Participants ARRESTED

About twenty models, make-up artists and designers were arrested after last Thursday's "Sudanese Next Top Model Fashion Show" in Khartoum, Reuters reports. The public event became contentious after both female and male models walked the runway.

An anonymous participant said, "There was nothing bad about the clothes. There were wedding dresses, traditional Sudanese clothes, suits, clothes from local shops and tobs (traditional Sudanese wraparound dresses)."

All those taken into custody were released on Friday but six of them were told to report back to the police on Sunday "to face unspecified charges."
