The footage caused a lot of talk on social media . Egypt is an extremely conservative nation. The footage appeared showing the pair sharing a meal, as reported by the Daily Monitor.
The woman was dressed in her native dress commonly known as an Islamic niqab was seen waving to the camera and feeding the man while filming the video with her hand.
“The labour ministry arrested an expatriate in Jeddah after he appeared in an offensive video,” the labour ministry said in a statement.

The video has attracted a lot of criticism from the public.
