Default Alleged bomb at Dubai Public Prosecution (Right now).

At the Creek, woman threatening to blow herself up!

Thought to be Syrian, husband being held.

National.

And I thought we lived in such a safe country....

Incredibly seven idiots (so far) have 'liked' that post...

On 7 days now, that also adds pictures of the Twitter feed from someone there.

Not sure I'd want to be the person (Usuf Jeelani) breaking the news, I reckon I'd just get the **** out of there to a safe haven - like Jockey's pub at The Panorama Hotel in Bur Dubai, just down the road.

And according to Feyaza Khan @FeyazaK on Twitter, she's now been taken into custody (that's the protester not Ms. Khan).

Can you imagine the total unadulterated panic that would have gone on? Some were saying that the whole of Bank Street (gotta be a mile away) should be evacuated! Bomb disposal people there too, in some ways I wish I'd been up at that end of town.

I know who you mean. Not a chap to get flustered. He actually trains the local police on these issues, so the ones who bother to turn up to training will have been taught well.

The FB thread is getting a bit stroppy. A woman with a Western name has suggested the woman with the alleged bomb is muslim and others are claiming racism. From the photo the woman appears to be wearing a headscarf, although that's far from conclusive obviously.

Interesting...

The proponent of the anti muslim rants has lots of pictures of cuddly animals on her FB page (lack of any FB security there then), says a lot about women who keep cats....
