Report: Egyptian forces arrest Qataris at Al Jazeera office in Cairo

CAIRO - Egyptian security forces raided an office of Qatar's Al Jazeera television channel late Wednesday night and arrested 11 Qatari citizens, state newspaper Al-Ahram reported.
Four Qatari police officers were among those arrested, Al-Ahram said.
It was not immediately possible to verify that the offices raided were linked to the Qatari channel.
Al Jazeera's offices in Cairo have been closed since July 3, when they were raided by security forces hours after Morsi was toppled, although the channel, broadcast from Qatar, can still be seen in Egypt.
