Iran has sent five planes of food exports to Qatar, Iran's national carrier told AFP on Sunday, days after Gulf countries cut off air and transport links to the emirate.

"So far five planes carrying perishable food items such as fruit and vegetables have been sent to Qatar, each carrying around 90 tonnes of cargo, while another plane will be sent today," Iran Air spokesman Shahrokh Noushabadi said.
