Qatar lashes out at UAE over QNA hacking

Qatar lashes out at UAE over QNA hacking

The United Arab Emirates has denied accusations that it was behind the hacking of the Qatar News Agency, which contributed to the political crisis in the Gulf.

The controversy started on May 23, when alleged hackers reportedly posted fake remarks on Qatar's official media platform criticising US foreign policy and attributing the statement to the country's emir.

The Washington Post says US intelligence agencies have confirmed the UAE was responsible for the cyber attack in May. In response, Qatar called it a crime and a violation of international law.
