Less leaky borders

The wrongly-banned Maurice, scratching bed-bug bites in Muscat while yearning for Kiki and his leafy Jumeira villa, has been forced to cancel the air balloon hired to ferry him over the Hajjar mountains. UAE border guards have become worryingly efficient at capturing infiltrators - rounding up 850 last month in June alone.

A statement from the Ministry said immigration, coastguards and border forces of the UAE Armed Forces apprehended the culprits as they tried to enter the country via land and sea. Some of them were arrested in their hiding places after entering the country and during inspections on highways.

Plans to enter by submarine have also been put on a back burner, with Oman increasing night sea patrols to prevent smugglers from taking people into the UAE under cover of darkness.
