    This week marked 100 days since Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain imposed a blockade on Qatar.

    They accuse the Arab Gulf state of spreading instability and supporting "terrorism", claims Qatar strongly denies.

    Reacting to the blockade, five Qatari artists have covered the walls of what was once Doha's Fire Station with graffiti.
