JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel's national swim team is competing under heavy security in a world competition in Dubai.

The team arrived in Dubai just in time for the Tuesday opening ceremony of the FINA World Swimming Championships after the United Arab Emirates agreed at the last minute to issue visas for the team. The team was subject to a thorough security check and their passports were not stamped, Haaretz reported.
