UAE boaters told to keep their distance from navy vessels

The UAE's National Transport Authority has issued new rules to all boaters registered in the country warning not "to approach a naval ship closer than 800 metres," following the death of an Indian fisherman who was fired upon by a US navy vessel on July 16 off Jebel Ali, Gulf News has reported. The regulations also include two additional warnings for boat operators to "not approach the naval vessel at fast speed other than to turn away from the ship" and to "not make sudden alterations to the course towards the naval ship."
