Congratulations are in order to Dubai Police. They said they'd catch the gang responsible for the ram-raid at Wafi Mall and they've been as good as their word.

Three people are in jail, two caught in the UAE and one in Eastern Europe, and the stolen jewellery has been recovered. Police released photographs - these are the two caught in the UAE:
The operation must have been in co-operation with other police forces - I assume Interpol and probably other European police forces were involved. That's good to see and very necessary with modern international crime.
Other suspects are still being hunted from the gang which is said to have committed over 100 operations in Europe.
The full story is in Gulf News, here.

Have they released any more news? I can't seem to find anything else about the robbery or the nationalities of the culprits.

Nothing concrete that I can find.

hold your horses. The police have arrested some people who as far as I know have not been found guilty so far.
I'll congratulate once the suspects are convicted.

anon that's true - except that they also recovered the jewellery. So unless they found it somewhere else and planted it on innocent people,then this is the gang.
