A 14-year-old boy has been arrested in the Saudi city of Jeddah for dancing to the Macarena song in a street. The boy was accused of "improper public behaviour" for enjoying the 1990s pop hit as he crossed a road.

It was unclear if he was going to be formally charged. In a 45 minute video clip, shared widely on social media, the boy stops halfway across the road and starts the well-known dance routine. The footage was first posted last year, but his arrest was reported on Monday. Some said the boy was a "legend" and "hero", while others apparently agreed with the Saudi authorities, stating that he behaviour was "immoral".

Abdallah al-Shahani performed the dance at a music festival in the city of Taif in southwestern Saudi Arabia. The dance had been banned in the Kingdom by the National Committee for Drug Control, on the grounds that it advocated or encouraged drug abuse, according to Saudi media. A young woman was arrested last month after footage emerged of her wearing a miniskirt and crop top at an archaeological site.

On Monday night, after President Donald J. Trump delivered a speech on Afghanistan, Philip Rucker, the Washington Post’s bureau chief for the White House, wrote on Twitter that he saw in that address “a new President Trump: Acknowledging a flip-flop and talking about gravity of office, history & substance.” Here was the long-awaited pivot to presidential behavior many had sought from Trump. On Tuesday evening, Trump came to Phoenix, Arizona, for a campaign rally, disregarding the calls by many-including that city’s mayor, Greg Stanton-to stay away. Speaking for more than an hour to a large and friendly crowd, Trump complained about the media, taunted liberal protesters and maligned Arizona’s two senators, both of whom are Republicans.

Renowned body builder, Dallas McCarver, has died at the age of 26, the Boca Raton Police Department confirms to PEOPLE
Divers have found the remains of some of the 10 sailors who went missing when a US destroyer collided with a tanker off Singapore, the navy said Tuesday, the latest deadly accident involving an American warship. The US Navy has announced a fleet-wide global investigation after the incident Monday involving the USS John S. McCain and the merchant vessel, which left a gaping gash in the destroyer’s hull. But Admiral Scott Swift, commander of the US Pacific Fleet, praised the surviving crew for saving the ship and saving lives, in the second collision involving an American warship in two months. The accident - which also left five sailors injured - happened before dawn in busy shipping lanes around the Strait of Singapore, and sent water flooding into the ship. A massive search involving planes and aircraft was launched and US Navy divers joined the hunt Tuesday, scouring the ship’s flooded compartments. Speaking in Singapore, Swift said “the divers were able to locate some remains in those sealed compartments during their search today”, without saying how many bodies were found. A US Navy statement confirmed he was referring to remains of some of the missing sailors. Swift said Malaysian authorities had also found a body and were sending it to the US Navy for identification. The Malaysian navy said the body was found eight nautical miles northwest of the accident site. The admiral said the search and rescue effort, involving hundreds of personnel and several countries, would continue, adding: “We’re always hopeful that there are survivors.” The McCain’s crew were “tough, and they are resilient”, Swift said. “It is clear that their damage control efforts saved their ship and saved lives.” It was the second fatal collision in two months - after the USS Fitzgerald collided with a Philippine-flagged cargo ship off Japan in June and left seven sailors dead - and the fourth accident in the Pacific this year involving an American warship.
