DUBAI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates will lodge a complaint against Qatar at the United Nations aviation agency on Tuesday after Qatari fighter jets twice intercepted UAE civilian aircraft during routine flights to Bahrain, a UAE official said.

The UAE will accuse Qatar of violating the Chicago Convention in its complaint to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), UAE General Civil Aviation Authority Director-General Saif Mohammed al-Suwaidi told Reuters.
