The UN human rights chief said today he was alarmed by the possible impact of the diplomatic isolation of Qatar, warning it could lead to widespread suffering among ordinary people.

"I am alarmed about the possible impact on many people's human rights in the wake of the decision by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and to cut diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar," Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said in a statement.
