Iraq’s prime minister has rejected Saudi and UAE media claims that a $500m ransom was paid by Qatar to Shia Muslim armed groups in Iraq to secure the release of 26 kidnapped Qatari hunters.
Haider al-Abadi said that money was received by the Iraqi government but the sum was still in the Iraqi central bank.
