Dubai, Jun 15: A former United Arab Emirates football player has been sentenced to death in the stabbing death another man during a 2008 brawl.


The Gulf News reports that the Abu Dhabi Supreme Court handed down the sentence Tuesday against Fayez Juma, who played for Sharjah and for the national team for four years.

A second player for Sharjah, Mohammed Najib, and Juma's brother, Moses, were also sentenced to death.

The court overturned a ruling from Sharjah Appeals Court that sentenced Juma to a year in jail for being involved in the stabbing that took place following a scuffle in a parking lot.

The Supreme Court ruled that Juma and the others planned the attack and had swords in their possession. AP
