Saudi officials apologise for 'indecent women' images at pro-wrestling show
Saudi sports officials have apologised after images of scantily clad women appeared on big screens during a pro-wrestling event held in the kingdom.
The Saudi General Sports Authority apologised in an online statement on Saturday.
Viewers said the broadcast of the WWE's "Greatest Royal Rumble" was cut off for a few moments as the images played.
The sports authority said there were shots of woman who were "indecent."
It also said it will not show matches involving female wrestlers.
Organisers only allowed women to watch the show at King Abdullah Sports City if they were accompanied by male guardians.
Friday night's event got political when Iranian-US wrestlers entered the stage waving the Iranian flag and confronted four amateur Saudi wrestlers in the ring.
The stunt provoked jeers and boos from the crowd.
Saudi Arabia and Iran are locked in an bitter rivalry with both countries competing for influence in the region.
The event comes as the ultra-conservative kingdom is gradually loosening restrictions on public entertainment.
