Egypt, Qatar trade barbs in dispute over Libya strikes

Qatar has recalled its ambassador from Cairo after an Egyptian diplomat accused the Doha government of supporting terrorism in a dispute over Egyptian air strikes on Islamic State targets in Libya. Egyptian warplanes bombed sites in Libya on Monday in response to the beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians by Islamic State militants there. The Arab League expressed its “complete understanding” over the Egptian action and threw its weight behind Cairo’s call for a lifting of the arms embargo on the Libyan army.
