    More than a 1,000 camels have been caught up in the dispute between Qatar and neighbouring Gulf countries.

    Saudi Arabia shut its border with Qatar on June 5 and travellers between the two countries, including camels, found themselves stranded.

    Saudi authorities expelled more than 12,000 camels and 5,000 sheep and their Qatari herders from its territory.
