Qatar Rejects Claims it Supports Islamic State

Qatar hit back over the weekend at suggestions that it supports the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, saying that "determined, collective action" is needed to end sectarian violence gripping Iraq and Syria, according to The Associated Press (AP).

The comments came after a German official last week suggested that Qatar may play a role in funding the Islamic State group, which is fighting in Iraq and Syria and recently beheaded American journalist James Foley.
