Saudi Arabia has closed the borders with Qatar. Diplomats say to the Saudi state press office that this is needed to protect “national security against the dangers of terrorism and extremism”.

That comment angered the other Gulf states, which see Iran as the biggest enemy in the region. Qatar later denied that the emir had actually said that.
There has been a longer disagreement between the countries about the approach to extremism in the region. A few months ago, Egypt blocked websites funded from Qatar and said to be linked to terrorism. Qatar is also home to Al Jazeera, the international news channel. Arab leaders often get angry about the news that Al Jazeera brings.
