The trials and tribulations of fisherman in the Gulf continue. Eleven Asian fisherman from Saudi Arabia crossed mistakenly into Emirati waters and were arrested. They maintain that they did this mistakenly. It is not known whether they had GPS or not.

Whilst is seems likely that they crossed accidentally, smuggling cannot be ruled out.  In January this year, for example, two Iranians were caught smuggling two others into Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE.
