5 detained in Turkey in connection with Qatar hacking

28 Août 2017

Qatar has said that five suspected computer hackers have been arrested in Turkey in connection with a cyber attack on Qatar's state news agency last May.

"Our friends in Turkey answered us a short time ago".

The hacking of the QNA website on May 24 attributed fabricated remarks to Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. Five people were detained and they are being investigated.

Despite a quick denial from Qatari authorities, news channels in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia broadcasted news of the inflammatory statement for days after the security breach took place. "Qatari prosecutors are working with Turkish authorities to follow this case", Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah quoted Al Marri as saying after meeting with Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul in Ankara.

Turkey has backed Doha throughout the standoff.

Qatar had announced on June 20 that it had proof that the hacking of its state-run news agency and government social media accounts, which set off a major diplomatic crisis in the region, was linked to countries that have recently cut ties with it.

The Post reported on July 16 that information from U.S. intelligence officials showed that senior UAE government officials discussed the planned hacks on May 23, the day before the hacking occurred.
