DUBAI — The United Arab Emirates on Saturday urged its nationals not to wear traditional dresses when travelling abroad after an Emirati man was cuffed in Ohio over terrorism fears.

Local media reported Sunday that Emirati national Ahmed al-Menhali was confined at gunpoint a week ago while wearing a traditional white kandura, or lower leg length robe, and headscarf in Avon, Ohio after a hotel clerk raised suspicions he could have links to the Islamic State group.

Local newspapers said Avon police released the man after they realised their mistake, but he fainted and needed hospital treatment.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a tweet late Saturday that Emiratis should avoid wearing the garments for their safety. A separate ministry statement urged women to abide by bans on face veils in parts of Europe.
