Arab states to discuss, impose new sanctions on Qatar

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain are expected to discuss imposing new economic sanctions on Qatar when they meet in the Bahraini capital Manama on Sunday, the pan-Arab al-Hayat newspaper reported.
The four Arab states cut ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of backing terrorist groups and cozying up to their arch-foe Iran, allegations Doha denies.
Foreign ministers of the four countries "are expected to impose sanctions that will gradually affect the Qatari economy," al-Hayat newspaper said, citing unidentified Gulf sources, without giving any further details.
