Qatari royal says he is being held against his will in UAE

Added: 16.01.2018 2:01 | 0 views | 0 comments


A controversial member of Qatar's royal family claimed he was being held against his will in the UAE yesterday/Sun, eight months into a crisis between the Gulf states. Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali Al-Thani, a little-known royal, emerged as a key figure in the dispute between the Gulf states in the weeks after Riyadh and Abu Dhabi cut ties with Doha. He is seen by some as a potential challenger to the Qatari leadership. A video circulating online, also broadcast by Qatar-based Al-Jazeera television, shows the sheikh seated in an armchair warning that he was "afraid something could happen to me that will be blamed on Qatar". "I am now in Abu Dhabi, where I was a guest of (UAE crown prince) Sheikh Mohammed" bin Zayed al-Nahyan, said Sheikh Abdullah, "That is no longer the case. I am now detained," he said. "I want to make clear that the people of Qatar are innocent," the sheikh said. "Sheikh Mohammed bears full responsibility for anything that happens to me." The video could not be immediately authenticated, while Emirati officials were not immediately available for comment. Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain severed diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar in June over allegations Doha supported Islamist extremists and had close ties to regional rival Iran. Doha denies the accusations. In response to the video, Qatar's foreign ministry spokeswoman, Lulwa al-Khater, said in a statement that Doha was monitoring the situation. "The state of Qatar observes the situation closely, and due to the total severance of ties with the UAE it is difficult to clearly establish the circumstances surrounding the situation," she said. "Despite that, the State of Qatar principally stands with the protection of rights for every individual and affirms the entitlement of his family to pursue all legal means for the protection of his rights."

Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock - PS4 Review | Chalgyr's Game Room

Added: 15.01.2018 21:01 | 0 views | 0 comments

Chalgyr's Game Room writes: Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock delivers a fantastic strategy game that provides hours of tactical combat and edge-of-your-seat encounters. That it is also a great representation of the Battlestar Galactica property is just an added, but very welcome, bonus. It is something of a surprise to me that a television series as popular as Battlestar Galactica was in the mid-to-late 2000's has not spawned better quality games, especially when one considers how popular 4x space strategy is as a video game genre. But Deadlock takes advantage of this entertainment gap and pulls the two together in an excellent blend of resource management and tactical combat.
