Five Arab countries that the United States said took part in Tuesday's airstrikes against Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Syria were largely tight-lipped on their participation in the action.The state news agencies of several of the countries confirmed that their armed forces were involved, but in some cases their reports appeared many hours after the strikes, or only after unidentified officials had already confirmed the news to international media outlets.While Qatari station Al-Jazeera gave prominence to the airstrikes, its website ran an item that listed the participation by other Arab states without mentioning Qatar's role, while the country's official Qatar News Agency failed to note that the strikes took place.
