Abu Dhabi: Six Saudi men have been arrested after shocking footage of them travelling on roof of a car transporter truck in the north-western city of Ha’il was posted on social media, a security official said.

The suspects, in their 30s and 40s, put their lives at risk while violating the precautionary and preventive measures taken to stem the spread of COVID-19, and bragged about the stunt, spokesperson for the Hail region police, Captain Tariq Al Nassar, said.

The six men were identified and remanded in custody pending trial, police said.
