Gulf dispute: Six months on, individuals still bear brunt of political crisis
Six months on since the onset of the political crisis in the Gulf region, ordinary people of multiple nationalities continue to pay the price, Amnesty International said today. The organization is calling on the governments of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to immediately lift arbitrary restrictions on population movement and to ensure there are transparent and operational mechanisms to enable Qatari nationals and foreign residents in Qatar to access the Holy Sites in Saudi Arabia.
