Surprisingly not created because of the 2022 World Cup. Something big's going down here.
What has happened?
Several Arab countries have announced that they are breaking diplomatic ties with Qatar. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain announced measures early on Monday. Several hours later the internationally recognised Yemeni government and Libya’s eastern-based government – which has little authority – followed suit. The Maldives then announced it too was cutting ties.
Saudi Arabia said it would close borders, severing land, sea and air contact with the tiny peninsula. The Saudis, the UAE and Bahrain have given Qataris two weeks to leave, and only 48 hours for its diplomats to quit.
