DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Dubai authorities say they have evacuated a government building after an Uzbek woman claiming to have explosives demanded to see officials to discuss a paternity dispute.
A statement from Dubai’s Media Office says negotiators are in contact with the woman in the ongoing standoff in the building’s lobby. It is unclear whether the woman accompanied by a child actually has an explosive device.
All personnel were ordered to leave the headquarters of the public prosecutors’ office.
The statement issued Sunday described the woman’s complaint as linked to her efforts to prove a man was the father of her child.
Attacks with weapons occur in domestic disputes in the United Arab Emirates, but incidents involving explosives are rare.
