But third parties have still been bringing some products from the boycotting nations to Qatar "through illegal channels," a source with knowledge of the situation told CNN on Sunday, declining to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter.

The agent -- a 15-year veteran -- fired one round from his service-issued firearm,
