An exiled Qatari royal family member once promoted by Saudi Arabia amid its ongoing dispute with Doha appeared in an online video Sunday claiming he's being held against his will in the United Arab Emirates, an allegation denied by an Abu Dhabi official.The video of Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali Al Thani, a little-known ruling family member until the boycott of Qatar by four Arab nations, offered new fuel to the monthslong stalemated crisis. Sheikh Abdullah appears to refer to Abu Dhabi's powerful crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who enjoys strong ties to Saudi Arabia's rulers.The UAE, one of four countries boycotting Qatar, denied the claim.Al-Nuaimi said that Sheikh Abdullah had asked to move to the Emirates for his "safety".However, the last tweet on the account came in October and Sheikh Abdullah has not been publicly seen for some time.
