I don't get to report much anymore, but this one I make an exception for.

The latest on the plane crash in Al Ain that killed four Americans two years ago.

It took 6 weeks, but this story is up on the National website!

Hiring managers run into trouble when certain nationalities apply to work in the UAE. The Government, however, says there is no discrimination.

It's not the first time I've written about this, but this case is unique in that the father isn't trying to hide behind UAE laws.
