UAE, home to Gulf financial hub Dubai, said on Sunday it would block key selling points including email, instant messaging, and web browsing from Oct. 11 until a fix could be found.

What UAE is doing is the right thing...Even i agree with the Dubai TRA govt, they should ban the bbm services and the internet as it invovlves national security...Mostly whenever there is a terrorist attack they always use devices tht no1 can access or trace...
