Government officials in Dubai have seized video copies of hit movie CHARLIE'S ANGELS (2000) because they felt it offended Islam.
Officials at the Islamic Affairs department are unhappy about a scene involving a belly dancer which has the Muslim call to prayers in the background.
Charlie's Angels (2000) was shown in Dubai cinemas for several weeks earlier this year (01) and the video is still available to rent in one supermarket chain popular with tourists. (RP/WNWCAN
