Two Britons in Dubai have had their appeal against a one-month jail sentence for indecency thrown out by the local authorities.
Ayman Najafi, 24, and Charlotte Adams, 25, were arrested by police in November after a 38-year-old mother accused them of kissing each other on the mouth in a restaurant at the Jumeirah Beach Residence.
The mother claimed that she had been offended by their behaviour and submitted written evidence to the courts.

The UAE is a multi-cultrual country and everyone living or visiting it has to respect its culture and respect the sensistivity of the people here.
The government and officials of this country are trying their best to find the right balance between satisfying the visitors/expat residents norms and the culture of its local people and so far they are doing a great job.
This balance is what gives the UAE its uniqueness that attracts people from the East and the West, a balance not available elsewhere and both visitors and expats need to be grateful for that.
