"Journalists, activists and others." Now that's scary.

Quote:
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – A Bahrain-based journalist for The Associated Press has been blocked from entry into the United Arab Emirates under apparent new restrictions by Gulf Arab states.

Reem Khalifa and her husband, Mansoor al-Jamri, chief editor for Bahrain's independent Al Wasat newspaper, were told Monday at Dubai International Airport that they were [*] a list to deny entry. No further explanations were immediately given, but it appears part of tighter coordination between Gulf allies to control and monitor journalists, activists and others in the region.

[*] "On" a list, apparently; not A-listers, surely.

Better to be "blocked from entry" than denied permission to leave.
