Saudi authorities have ordered the arrest of a citizen for abusing a non-Muslim Asian expatriate and asking him to embrace Islam, according to a media report on Tuesday.

A monitoring centre affiliated with the public prosecution examined the video which "shows the citizen's use of abusive words against the Asian resident on the pretext of inviting him to Islam," an official source at the Public Prosecution was quoted as saying.

"The public prosecution ordered the arrest of the abusive citizen," the source added.
