Saudi Arabia’s religious police arrested 30 people Friday during a mixed gender party in Riyadh, claiming that the people involved were “Satan worshippers,” local media reported.

Those arrested included Americans, Europeans, Saudis and other Arabs, a member of the police body tweeted Saturday.

“The arrested were participating in their Satanic rituals and parading around the fire [naked]. Unfortunately, some of them were Saudis,” the official wrote.

The statement by the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, the kingdom’s religious police body, also said that the party-goers were consuming alcohol and using drugs while listening to loud music.

One of the Americans arrested was accused of pushing drugs.

Separately, Kuwaiti forces raided a beach party arresting 76 people at a gathering involving “illegal activities,” local news reported Sunday without specifying the date of the arrests.

Forty-nine men and 27 women were arrested in the campaign after neighbors of the chalet complained that youth renting the place were holding open air dance parties that included alcohol and “immoral acts” were taking place.

Alcohol is banned in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
