DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - A state-linked newspaper in the United Arab Emirates says the Louvre Abu Dhabi has replaced a map at the museum that didn’t show Qatar amid a diplomatic crisis pitting Doha against four Arab nations - including the UAE.

The report Monday by The National, an English-language newspaper in Abu Dhabi, quoted a statement from the museum saying “the inaccuracy was an oversight and so we have replaced the map on display.”

The map was in a children’s section at the museum.

The museum did not respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

Qataris online had criticized the map as an effort to erase their peninsular nation amid the diplomatic crisis.

The crisis began June 5 and saw Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE all boycott Qatar.
