Terrorist threat or drunken conversation?

According to the Gulf News the recent high status terrorist alert in Dubai was based on a conversation between two drunken men at a bar in the Hilton, according to "Diplomatic sources".

One of two drunk Arab man was reported to have said, jokingly:

"If someone wants to scare all these people and make them run away, just say there is a bomb. A belt bomb will kill hundreds of them."

Secret Dubai Diary
also reported the story, with a bit of a twist. Is this story real, or a bit of spin doctoring by the UAE government?

In any case, the warning remains.
