Mankini-wearing 'Borat' tourists arrested in Kazakhstan



Six Czech tourists who dressed up as Borat have been arrested in Kazakhstan for wearing nothing but mankinis.

The group posed for photos dressed in the revealing swimsuits in the capital city of Astana last week.

Local media reported on Tuesday the tourists were arrested and fined 22,500 Tenge ($67; £51) each for their "indecent" appearances.

The costume was made notorious by Borat, a fictional Kazakh TV presenter played by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

Should've gone to Romania, that's where the first sequences of Borat were filmed.

That does sound like quite a lot...

... or maybe not. That's quite forgiving, they got off almost scot-free.
I'm sorry for the residents of Astana, to be honest.
