Saudis shut down camel urine shop: owner selling his own urine
Saudi authorities closed down a shop which had been selling traditional camel urine drinks… after discovering the owner had been filling the bottles with his own bodily waste.
Saudi authorities have closed down a shop selling traditional camel urine drinks after discovering the owner had been filling the bottles with his own bodily waste.
Health inspectors swooped on a vendor in the port city of Al Qunfudhah, in south-western Saudi Arabia, and confiscated more than 70 full bottles.
The practice of drinking camel’s urine mixed with milk is believed to date back centuries while some insist it has health benefits.
But the shopkeeper’s business was closed down indefinitely amid claims he had been selling his own urine to unsuspecting customers.
The traditional camel urine drink is believed to have originated from a passage in the Hadith.
