The Times of London was available throughout the UAE on Monday after having its Sunday edition banned from newsstands across the country on November 29, Zawya Dow Jones reports. The Sunday Times was banned for its illustration of Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, sinking in debt.
An official at the National Media Council (NMC) in Abu Dhabi said the illustration was “offensive.”
