US urges Saudi allies to ease Qatar blockade

WASHINGTON: The United States urged Saudi Arabia and its regional allies today to ease their blockade imposed on Qatar, saying it was harming the regional struggle against extremism.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Qatar must do more to crack down on support for terrorism but that the crisis must not disrupt action against the Islamic State group.
