Dear readers, watch the exclusive photos and video of extreme good looking Omar Borkan Al Gala, one of the three men who were deported from Saudi Arabia to Abu Dhabi for their good looks. Omar however has not confirmed the news yet.
The incident reportedly took place after Omar and two others had attended Riyadh's annual Janadriyah Festival. According to Emirates 24/7, the religious police had started eyeing on the three due to the presence of a female Emirati artist at the event where the three men were delegates to promote UAE.
“Her visit to the UAE stand was a coincidence as it was not included in the programme which we had already provided to the festival’s management,” the Huffington Post quoted a UAE delegation spokesman as saying in a statement.

UAE men ordered to leave Saudi Arabia for being 'too handsome' | Metro News
Being handsome is normally seen as a positive but for a number of men attending a cultural festival, it was the reason given to them for being thrown out.
Many of us will never be faced with this problem – but for a contingent from the United Arab Emirates being ‘too handsome’ is actually a real concern.
The delegates were reportedly ordered to leave an event in Saudi Arabia and then thrown out of the country because authorities thought their looks may corrupt young women.
Arabic newspaper Elaph said: ‘A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the commission [for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices] members feared female visitors could fall for them.’
But the men have denied their dashing looks were to blame for them being deported and instead said authorities were concerned by a female artist they were travelling with.
‘Her visit to the UAE stand was a coincidence as it was not included in the programme which we had already provided to the festival’s management,’ added Saeed Al Kaabi, who was the head of the UAE delegation,” a photographer, actor and poet Omar shared on his Facebook Timeline on April 21.
