Senior officials from Qatar have strongly denied claims the country is supporting terrorist groups in Syria such as Islamic State.

They said Qatar had only provided support to moderate militants, in co-ordination with the CIA and other Western and Arab intelligence agencies.

The comments come ahead of a visit to the UK this week by the Qatar's ruler Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad.
