Unusual discovery draws crowds

Dubai: It should have been an everyday expedition for the Pakistani fisherman as he sought his catch in the Arabian Gulf.

But what started as a routine voyage rapidly turned into a day he will never forget after landing a fish which allegedly had the Arabic inscription of the name Allah on its side.

No one knows if the fish was caught in that condition or whether a late April Fool's joke was behind the discovery.

News of the fish spread like wildfire prompting people to come to Dubai from all over the UAE.
