Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on Monday announced they were cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar, citing what they say is Qatar's support for extremist groups and its relations with Iran.
The four countries also said they would cut off sea and air traffic, while Saudi Arabia added it would also shut down its border with Qatar.
Qatar denies any support for militant groups and says the crisis is being fueled by “absolute fabrications” and is a “violation of its sovereignty.”
