Fan Fair


Vice police in Saudi Arabia reportedly arrested Hisham Abdel Rahman for causing an indecent scene. The winner of Star Academy, an Arabic show similar to American Idol, Rahman was at a mall in Riyadh when several male and female fans approached him to shake his hand and kiss him. The religious police deemed the scene improper and tried to break it up. Local and international newspapers report the singer refused to leave and was detained until a senior government official had him freed. But the singer now says a police official asked him not to stand in the crowd, so he and his family walked away and he wasn't detained.
