    Local newspapers in the United Arab Emirates say authorities are investigating an Egyptian couple who tried to sneak their infant into the Gulf country by hiding him in their carry-on luggage.

    Monday’s reports say authorities discovered the baby at Sharjah airport when it showed up on an X-ray scan of the bag. Carry-on luggage is typically scanned at Emirati airports on arrival, after passengers have their passports stamped.

    The Gulf News says the baby boy had no passport, visa or other documents allowing him entry to the UAE.

    Well, I guess some people will do anything to avoid paying for an extra seat or for the lap-child fare. :D

    In all seriousness, anyone who would actually do something like this is a sleazeball. :mad::eek:
