Four people have reportedly been arrested after becoming involved in a fight with swords and knives at a Dubai.

The fight between two Emiratis and two Saudis began following accidental physical contact outside a washroom at the hotel in the Al Rigga area, according to Khaleej Times.

All four were subsequently taken to hospital, with one of them said to be seriously injured.

Major-General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, assistant commander-in-chief of Dubai Police for Criminal Investigation, said: “One of the suspects’ shoulders brushed with another. This led to an exchange of insults, followed by an argument and a fight.”

The four suspects are reported to all be aged between 25 and 29.
