Saudi police 'stopped' fire rescue

In 2002 Saudi Arabia's religious police stopped schoolgirls from leaving a blazing building because they were not wearing correct Islamic dress, according to Saudi newspapers.

Whoa.. Talk about strict dresscode! As a minor footnote, it should probably be mentioned, that 15 schoolgirls died in the blaze.
