Five detained in hacking of Qatar News Agency

28 Août 2017

Qatar's attorney general said Turkey has detained five suspects in connection with the hacking of Qatar's state news agency in May. Five people were detained and they are being investigated.

Marri said in a statement carried by QNA that the arrests have come as result of security cooperation between Doha and Ankara to combat cyber crime. They contacted friendly countries and asked for help on the subject, given that electronic crimes do not recognise borders by their nature. In comments published by QNA on Saturday, Qatar's Attorney General Ali Bin Fetais al-Marri said the suspects were being interrogated, without specifying their nationalities or any other details.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic relations and cut off land, air and sea links with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting "terrorism" and advancing the agenda of their regional rival, Iran.

The Washington Post, quoting unnamed U.S. intelligence officials, reported that the UAE orchestrated the hacking and planted a false story that was used as a pretext for the crisis between Qatar and four Arab countries.
