    Delegates at a conference in Doha on human rights and media freedom have condemned the actions of Saudi Arabia and its allies, which imposed a blockade on Qatar seven weeks ago.

    The conference came as the group issued a new list of what they say are "terrorist" groups and individuals linked to Qatar, including charities, media outlets and armed groups.

    Qatar strongly denies the allegations made against the peninsula.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Doha.
