The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has advised its citizens to avoid "dangerous areas" in London. It released a map showing shopping and entertainment areas in London's West End. The UAE advised Emiratis to stay away from areas, "where pickpocketing, fraud and theft are frequent". The advice follows different attacks on Emiratis in London earlier this year. In one, three sisters were badly hurt by a burglar using a hammer in their hotel room.

London’s police said there were no "no-go" areas in London, saying: "There is absolutely nowhere in London which should be avoided." Gangs and pickpockets target Emiratis because of their expensive clothes. London's police said the UAE should tell people how to stay safe through "preventive measures". These should educate Emiratis visiting, studying or doing business in London. The advice should also be for the rest of Europe and all over the world.
