An Arab millionaire plans to drag an entire iceberg to the UAE in a bid to provide fresh drinking water for the drought-hit Middle Eastern nation.

Businessman Abdulla Alshehi hopes to tow a massive chunk of ice over 5,500 miles (8,800km) from Heard Island, near Antarctica, to the Emirates using a modified tug boat.

The iceberg would then be anchored two miles off the coast of Fujairah - a tiny coastal city on the Gulf of Oman and one of the seven emirates that make up the UAE.
