Muslim World League supports decision to release Qatar-linked ‘terrorism’ list
The Muslim World League has said it supports a decision by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt in designating 59 Qatar-linked individuals and 12 entities with ties to terrorism.
The four Arab countries announced on Friday a list of the individuals and entities and accused Qatar of supporting them in their efforts to finance terrorist organization across the region.

"This list is connected to Qatar and serves suspicious agendas in an indication of the duality of Qatar policies," a joint statement released on Friday read.
"The four countries agreed on categorizing 59 persons and 12 entities in their list of terrorism," they said, affirming "that they won't be lenient in pursuing" such persons and groups.
Along with 18 Qataris, many on the list are individuals and groups from Egypt, Bahrain and Libya.
