A cooked sheep's head stuffed inside a bag caused quite a bit of commotion at an airport in Dubai recently, an Arabic newspaper reported.
An official at the Dubai airport smelt something fishy - or should we say sheep-y? - as he spotted something suspicious inside one of the two bags a passenger had checked in from Khartoum.
When he was asked to hand over the bag with the suspicious cargo, he tried to trick the authorities by giving the other bag. Officials then asked him to open the first bag, from which the head was recovered.
Officials had to assure other worried passengers at the airport that nothing criminal had transpired and that the Sudanese man had brought the head to Dubai to eat it later.
The item was seized, however, as it is not allowed in check-in or hand luggage on flights.
