Qatar recalls ambassador from Egypt in dispute over Libya strikes
Thu 19 Feb 2015 at 13:54
NNA – Qatar has recalled its ambassador to Egypt, the state news agency QNA said late on Wednesday, in a dispute over Egyptian air strikes on Islamic State targets in Libya.
The diplomatic row came just two months after a thaw began in relations between the two.
Egyptian jets bombed sites in Libya on Monday hours after Islamic State militants there released a video showing the beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians, drawing Cairo directly into the conflict across its border.
Qatar expressed reservations over the attack at a subsequent meeting of the Arab League, angering Cairo.
Saad bin Ali al-Muhannadi, a Qatari foreign ministry official, cited misgivings on “unilateral military action in another member (state) in a way that could harm innocent civilians”.–REUTERS
