Report Says 2nd Dubai Firm Under US Probe


A U.S. newspaper reports that American officials are reviewing a second Dubai company's plans to acquire interests in the United States.

The Washington Post says Thursday the review involves plans by Dubai International Capital to take over a British firm, Doncasters Group that makes parts for U.S. defense contractors.

The company confirms it is seeking U.S. approval for the billion-dollar deal.

The report comes days after another Dubai firm, Dubai Ports World and U.S. officials agreed to a new, broader review of its plans to take over some operations in six U.S. ports.

The port deal has angered U.S. lawmakers from both parties, who say they were not informed about the plan before its approval.

The Post also reports that U.S. officials are reviewing an Israeli company's bid to buy a software security firm that does business with the Defense Department.

Some information for this report was provided by AP, Bloomberg and Reuters.
