UAE denies hacking Qatar news agency

The United Arab Emirates has denied it was behind the alleged hacking of Qatar’s state news agency in May.

The Washington Post cited US intelligence officials as saying the UAE had orchestrated the posting of incendiary quotes attributed to Qatar’s emir that he insisted were fabricated. The incident sparked a diplomatic rift between Qatar and its neighbors. UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said on Monday that the Post’s report was “not true”. He also reiterated that the UAE and five other Arab nations had not written to FIFA to demand that Qatar be stripped of the right to host the 2022 World Cup.
