DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov 18: The United Arab Emirates has quietly mounted "an unprecedented clampdown on dissent" since 2011, with more than 100 political activists jailed or prosecuted for calling for political reforms, leading human rights group Amnesty International said in a report released Tuesday.

The nearly 80-page report said that the Western-allied Gulf Arab country projects an image of glitz and glamor, but that beneath this facade "is a much uglier reality, where activists who dare to challenge the authorities or speak out in favor of greater democracy and government accountability are thrown into jail."
