Breaking News in the Marina

Bomb blast at parking lot of Marina Walk near Spinneys... this is the report I'm getting right now from a friend in the vicinity--but not at the scene. Can anyone corroborate?

I think I need Twitter : ).

EDIT by samuraisam: No bomb blast. Was just a rumor.

Sorry but to post this is so irresponsible.

Surely a blog is for reporting facts or opinions?

Why not twit as opposed to thinking u should?

C'mon BD, Dubai has the world's most active rumour mill! Shindagah Tunnel is collapsing, the Trade Centre is falling over, Burj Al Arab is tilting, thousands of cars abandoned at the airport, hundreds of Brits are living in their cars or in the desert, Abu Dhabi is buying all Dubai's assets, there's a bomb at Marina Walk...

I was in Spinneys Marina Walk fifteen minutes ago and it's all perfectly normal.

This is such an irresponsible post (even if was true) !!!

The admin needs to review these kind of posts and the way rumours or news is posted on this blog

"Abu Dhabi is buying all Dubai's assets

That one is kinda sorta true."

Umm, bondholders have fewer rights than shareholders. Read a book.

ABIT, the central bank buying $10 billion of Dubai bonds is not the same as AD government buying Emirates and Emaar!

BD: please make sure as much as possible that what you are posting is true as this blog has a high readership and posts such as these can create panic.

Someone posted about this on the dubaiforums.com site which will carry on the rumor

Speaking of rumors, I've heard one going around about the legal driving age being changed to 17 instead of 18. Anyone hear anything about that?

Instead of posting rumors, I think we need this site to be a place to debunk them. I'm sick and tired of hearing 'the Burj Dubai is sinking', 'there's a bomb in [insert random place in Dubai]' etc etc.
