RAS AL KHAIMAH// A gang has been arrested for attempting to sell US$1.5 million in counterfeit money in Ras Al Khaimah.

The four men – all from Arab countries – sought buyers for the fake notes at a price of Dh1m, according to Maj Mohammed Al Qasimi, head of CID at RAK Police.

Police received a tip-off about the men and set them up in a sting operation.
