Qatar said it was banning products originating from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain, almost a year after those states imposed an embargo on Doha, accusing it of supporting terrorism.Since last June, some foods and other products from the embargo states have continued to find their way into Qatar through third countries.A spokesman for Qatar's government did not immediately respond to emailed questions on the volume of goods that would be affected by the new ban, and on whether the ban would cover all products trans-shipped through the embargo states in addition to goods produced there.
