Officials in the United Arab Emirates are urging citizens to avoid wearing their traditional dress outside the region to "preserve their safety."
The warning comes after an Emirati man, wearing traditional robes and traveling in the U.S., was detained at a hotel in Ohio.
According to Newsy's partners at WEWS, the Avon Police Department responded to the call of a man in a hotel lobby "in full head dress with multiple disposable phones pledging his allegiance to ISIS."
