Emirati man arrested for showing sympathy with Qatar

An Emirati man was arrested late Wednesday for exercising his right of freedom of speech after criticising UAE authorities and showing sympathy with Qatar via social media.

Ghanem Abdullah Mattar was detained shortly after posting a video on his twitter account urging Emirati citizens to show respect to their "Qatari brothers especially during this difficult time" in reference to the Saudi-led blockade of Qatar.

According to local activists, the UAE security forces stormed his family house at night Wednesday and arrested him.
