DUBAI (Reuters) - Qatar has recalled its ambassador in Cairo "for consultations", state news agency QNA said late on Wednesday, amid disputes over Egyptian air strikes in Libya.

The agency quoted the director of Arab affairs department at the Qatari foreign ministry as saying that Doha had expressed reservation at an Arab League meeting in Cairo over Egypt's unilateral decision to carry out air raids in Libya without consultations with other Arab states.
