Saudi Arabia Opens First Alcohol Shop In The Month Of Ramadan

An alcohol shop for diplomats has opened in Saudi Arabia in the month of Ramadan and since gone viral.

It’s a significant move in a country that has banned alcohol for over 70 years in 1952.

Some believe in order to transform the tourism economy it is a sign of things to come.

In the meantime, Riyadh has become known for making some of the best non-alcohol cocktails in the world.

Is this a small policy change, or does it signal a wider relaxation of the rules?

We hear from young Saudis about the generational divide in a country trying to change its image.
