A court convicted seven men of indecency yesterday for wearing make-up during a fashion show in Khartoum.

The men, amateur models at the Sudanese Next Top Model Fashion Show in June, were arrested by the public order police, a body known for its crackdowns on perceived indecent dress and drinking in the Muslim north.

They were each fined 200 Sudanese pounds (£50), as was a woman who applied the make-up. They had faced a maximum sentence of 40 lashes and imprisonment.
