UAE: Israeli woman sentenced to death over drug possession

The United Arab Emirates has sentenced an Israeli woman to death, after she was found guilty of possessing 500 grams of cocaine. The woman – identified as 43-year-old Fidaa Kiwan – is appealing the sentence.

The woman, who owns a photography studio in Haifa in northern Israel, came to Dubai for work about a year ago. She was arrested a week later after police found the cocaine in the apartment she was staying in. Kiwan reportedly claimed the drugs weren’t hers.
