Australian mine 'Harlem Shake' prank harmless, says lawyer

A worker sacked for performing the dance craze "Harlem Shake" in an Australian gold mine had considered safety and only did it on a break, his lawyer said, adding that the prank was harmless. As many as 15 electrical workers were fired by Barminco, apparently for safety reasons, after video of a small group doing the dance, which involves thrusting and gyrating, in a Western Australian mine was posted online.

Tunis mega 'Harlem Shake' all but rained out

Ten thousand people promised to show up in front of Tunisia's education ministry on Friday to perform a protest version of the "Harlem Shake" dance craze, but only a few dozen braved the rain to do so. Performances over the past week have infuriated ultra-conservative Muslims with their smoking, wild dancing and simulation of sexual acts, and led to punch-ups with them and clashes with police.

Fresh Harlem Shake scuffles in Tunisia

Tunisian students and radical Muslim Salafists have faced off in renewed scuffles over the "Harlem Shake" dance craze in the cities of Sidi Bouzid and Tunis, witnesses said on Thursday. In Sidi Bouzid, birthplace of Tunisia's 2011 revolution, Regueb school students tried to film their version of the "Harlem Shake" on Wednesday on the premises but were denied permission. School officials said the students took to the streets outside where they were set up upon by about 20 Salafists, ultra-conservative Muslims, who warned them against "this Western dance of misbelievers".
