Two killed as sword fight breaks out on UAE highway

Three men were arrested after two Emiratis were killed when a sword fight broke out on one of the UAE’s main highways at the weekend, according to local news reports.
The two men were killed on Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road, on the northbound carriageway – which runs along much of the length of the country, Gulf News reported.
The suspects, aged 18, 26 and 30 - who are from the Comoros - were arrested less than 12 hours after the incident, said Col. Abdullah Saif Al Matrooshi, Director of the Police Operations Department at Ajman Police.
