FIFA SAYS WONT COMMENT OVER QATAR DIPLOMATIC RIFT

Football's world governing body FIFA said Monday it would not be commenting for now on a decision by a number of Arab countries to cut diplomatic ties with 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar.

A FIFA spokesperson said FIFA was "in regular contact" with the local organizing committee and other bodies dealing with issues related to the 2022 World Cup.

Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Yemen have closed their borders and called on Qataris to leave within two weeks, after accusing Qatar of supporting terrorism in Yemen and Syria.
