June 28 (Bloomberg) -- Qatar’s QE Index fell 0.5 percent to 8,123.02, the lowest since Aug. 24, at the close in Doha. The measure is down 7.5 percent this year. Dubai’s benchmark DFM General Index was little changed and Saudi Arabia’s market was closed for the weekend.

Industries Qatar QSC (IQCD QD), the second-biggest petrochemicals maker in the Middle East, fell 1.2 percent to 125 riyals, the lowest since Oct. 12. Crude for August delivery fell as much as 0.6 percent to $79.75 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
