(MENAFN - Arab Times) The United Arab Emirates have expelled eight Kuwaiti students from two universities for forming a union, collecting donations and holding unauthorised meetings, an higher education official said. The expulsion is a rare move against students from a fellow Gulf country.

Kuwait's Alrai newspaper speculated that the students were expelled due to suspected links to the Muslim Brotherhood which is banned in the UAE.

The University of Sharjah and the University of Ajman have expelled the students for "violating the internal regulations of the universities," the official from the ministry of higher education said late Saturday.

The students were involved in "forming a student union with a permit from the administration at both universities, in addition to collecting donations and holding illegal gatherings in dormitories," the state news agency WAM quoted the official as saying. "This represents a violation of UAE laws," the unnamed official added, without disclosing the identities or the affiliations of the students.
