The United Arab Emirates hacked web sites in nearby Qatar, prompting the feud among several Gulf states that's almost two months old with no sign of a resolution, The Washington Post reported.

The false reports posted on the Qatari websites said that Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani called Iran an "Islamic power" and praised Hamas, the Palestinian militant and political organization, The Post reported.

The Washington Post reported that Otaiba's private emails were hacked by a pro-Qatari hacker group called GlobalLeaks and the ambassador's private account's contents have since been circulated to journalists.

The Washington Post reported that United States intelligence officials learned last week of newly analysed information that showed that senior UAE government officials discussed the planned hacking on May 23, the day before it occurred.

The UAE embassy in Washington on Monday sent a series of tweets quoting its ambassador, Yousef Al Otaiba, denying the Washington Post report, which was published Sunday and, according to the paper, was based on information provided by unnamed USA intelligence officials.

Troopers seized the video footage and are in the process of obtaining a search warrant to use the video as evidence. The published reports say if the drivers are found guilty they will have their licenses suspended for three years.

The claim by the agency is that it got hacked but after these controversial statements Saudi Arab, UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt all cut ties with Qatar.

"The UAE had no role whatsoever in the alleged hacking", UAE ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba said in a statement. Such statements are at odds with the prevailing sentiment in the Gulf.

What is true is Qatar's behavior.

Qatar said in late May that hackers had posted the fake remarks by Sheikh Tamim, but several Arab Gulf media outlets refused to give credence to the denial. Funding, supporting, and enabling extremists from the Taliban to Hamas and Gadhafi.

The ongoing crisis has threatened to complicate the US- led coalition's fight against the Islamic State group as all participants are USA allies and members of the anti-IS coalition.

Obama still president, according to letter sent to new United States citizens
It included a letter with that familiar Barack Obama signature - and he was referred to as president of the United States. As it turns out, there's often a lag time between old and new letters when an administration takes over.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation was previously known to be working with Qatar to probe the hacking.

Gargash's speech in London appeared to question Qatar's future in the GCC.

The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt responded by blocking Qatari media. "You can not be both our friend and the friend of Al Qaeda". It is still unclear whether Qatar's other neighbours were also involved in the attacks.

They say Qatar has supported many radical groups.

Gargash described the list on Monday as an "opening gambit" but declined to directly answer whether the quartet would insist on closing Al Jazeera, implying the quartet may soften their demands.
