British man held in Dubai for raising middle finger

BBC News:-A British man who raised his middle finger at another driver in Dubai could face jail after he was arrested for “offensive behaviour”.

Jamil Ahmed Mukadam, from Leicester, said he reacted “in frustration” when the driver cut him off in traffic.

It happened in February but he was detained on 10 September as he returned to Dubai for a second holiday.

His passport has been confiscated and Mr Mukadam has been told he must remain in the city awaiting a court hearing.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are assisting a British man who was detained in Dubai and remain in contact with the local authorities.”
