A woman has been filmed walking a busy city street while completely naked from the waist down in a reported protest at a judge who allegedly ignored her complaints against her ex-husband.

The bizarre scene took place in the Lebanese capital Beirut and the unidentified young woman was promptly arrested during her ‘indecent’ protest.

In the footage, a passing motorist films the woman as she calmly walks along a pavement.

While sporting a blouse, handbag, sunglasses and heeled shoes, the woman wore nothing else.

The motorist drives in front of the woman, filming her exposed genitals as the video comes to an end.

According to local media reports, the woman was protesting a judge who ignored numerous complaints against her ex-husband and his family for making constant threats.

While walking between the city areas of Achrafieh and Al Barbir, the young woman was stopped and detained by the police.

According to the General Directorate of the Internal Security Forces, the defendant admitted her guilt during a preliminary hearing and promised to not repeat the act in exchange for being allowed to go home with judicial controls.

It is unclear when she is next expected to appear before the authorities and what charges she faces for her public protest.
