Dubai: The UAE issued a travel advisory on Friday for citizens heading to or residing in the United Kingdom, after the stabbing of an Omani student who died on Friday due to his injuries.

The UAE embassy in UK tweeted a warning from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation that citizens should take special care, especially at night, and not to wear valuable items that attract attention in public places. British media reported that the victim was targeted for his expensive watch. 

The victim of the most recent stabbing incident, identified as Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Araimi, believed to be in his 20s, was pronounced dead in Brompton Road, Knightsbridge shortly before 1am on Friday. British media reported that the victim was targeted for his expensive watch.

It is the third such fatal stabbing in the UK capital in less than 24 hours after similar incidents in Hackney at 2pm on Thursday and Greenwich at 3am on Friday.

Police said another man was injured and taken to the hospital where he remains in a serious condition. Unconfirmed reports suggest the injured man is a Bahraini national and had been with the Omani student at the time of the attack.
