Snap removes Al Jazeera in Saudi Arabia

US-based firm Snap, maker of photo-sharing app Snapchat, on Sunday said it has removed Al Jazeera from the app's 'Discover' section in Saudi Arabia. Snap said the Saudi authorities asked to remove the Qatar-based news channel as it violated local laws. Notably, Saudi Arabia and other Arab states had cut ties with Qatar this year, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

The conflict is the latest example of a technology company being pinned in the crosshairs of geopolitics as it navigates censorship of content on its platforms
