Egyptian authorities shut down Qatar airlines offices at Cairo international airport, adhering to halting air travel between Cairo and Doha which had been issued after Egypt cut ties with Qatar.

The authorities expelled all workers at Qatar airlines in the airport and ordered them not to enter the airport.

This comes as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed their ties with Qatar on Monday, accusing it of supporting terrorism and opening up the worst rift in years among some of the most powerful states in the Arab world .
