5 Arab nations cut ties with Qatar, complicating U.S. coalition-building

BEIRUT — Egypt, Saudi Arabia and three other Arab countries severed all ties with Qatar early Monday, in a renewal of a four-year effort to isolate it and in a sign of a new boldness after a visit to the region by President Donald Trump.

In an abrupt move that surprised many in the region, the five Arab states not only suspended diplomatic relations, as they have in the past, but also cut off land, air and sea travel to and from Qatar and ordered their citizens to leave the country.
