Actually the Australian media is very interested in it, probably because it happened here. I'm glad they have been giving the situation decent coverage. The news has been on all the major news programs and has also been getting significant coverage in newspapers.

I feel very sad for the people of the UAE especially Dubai.

My condolences to people of Dubai and all UAE.

Has the burial taken place already. I couldn't find the pictures of the funeral so far. Who did attend the funeral? I heard King Abdullah of Jordan and PM of Pakistan were there. Who else? What about King Abdullah of Saudi, Sultan of Oman and otheir Emirs of the neighbouring countries?
