Beirut Nightclub Shut Down over Explicit Show
A Beirut nightclub has been shut down on Tuesday by the interior ministry after explicit footage on the dance floor circulating on social media.
Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq ordered the nightclub to be closed after viewing a video posted on social media showing half-naked women dancing.
“After viewing the video in a nightclub in Beirut on social media showing pornographic show, the Interior Minister asked the Internal Security Forces to investigate the matter and close the nightclub and turn those responsible to the competent judicial authorities,” Mashnouq's media office said on twitter.
The video has circulated over the weekend and drew sharp criticism on social media.
The name of the club was not revealed.
