Saudi Arabia has ordered closure of around 100 lingerie shops in Riyadh for violating new regulations that ban men from working as sales staff, the Daily Mail reported.
All shops flouting a decree on the "feminisation and nationalisation of jobs" would be shut down, a Labour Ministry official was quoted by the newspaper Al-Eqtisadiah as saying.
Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia's Labour Ministry had banned male assistants from working at lingerie shops as a first step to be followed by women-only sales assistants at cosmetics outlets.
