Islamist group Hamas on Tuesday denied reports that its leader Khaled Meshaal has been expelled from Qatar.

"There is no truth to what some media outlets have published over the departure by brother Khaled Meshaal from Doha," Hamas official Ezzat al-Rishq told Reuters by telephone.

Another Hamas source confirmed that Meshaal was still in Doha and has no plans to leave the country.
