- A senior Hamas official denies reports that the group's political leader was expelled from Qatar
- Earlier, sources close to Hamas told CNN the expulsions were happening
Earlier Monday, sources close to Hamas told CNN that Meshaal
and members of the Muslim Brotherhood were expelled from Qatar, and were most likely on the way to Turkey.
Risheq, speaking from Qatar, said that was not true.
The Qatari government has not commented.
Saudi Arabia has been working to improve relations between Qatar and Egypt.
Qatar supports the Muslim Brotherhood; Hamas is an extension of the group. Egypt removed the Islamist organization from power in 2013.
