Saudi Arabia has asked the organizers of celebrity visits to the American troops to withdraw a visa application for Brooke Shields, an informed source said Friday.

The reason was not immediately known. But the planned appearance of Shields, known in the West as an actress and a model, may have offended Saudi authorities, who have strict rules governing the appearance of women.

The USO, which organizes most tours to entertain the troops, has so far refrained from putting on any shows, despite visits by comedians Steve Martin and Jay Leno, in order to avoid offending the Saudi government.
