A group of young men have been detained by Saudi Arabian religious police for dancing at a birthday party.

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Haia) raided a house and arrested the men for "loud music and inappropriate dancing", then referred them to prosecutors, AP reported.

It is not yet clear how many people have been arrested.

An official told newspaper Ayn al-Youm that once the police raided the house, they found the young men in "a compromising situation in their dance and shameful movements" and added that there was also a cake and candles to celebrate one of the men's birthdays.

The official then urged Saudi Arabian parents to watch their children as certain behaviour "can lead to immorality and even homosexuality."

Saudi Arabian clerics consider Western music and birthday celebrations sinful and therefore at odds with Islamic strictures.

The arrests sparked outrage on social media with many arguing the men were not drinking alcohol or partying with women, which are both crimes in Saudi Arabia.
