Qatar announces 'work-related' death at WCup stadium site

DOHA, Qatar (AP) Organizers of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar say that a worker has died in a "work-related" incident at a stadium building site.

No further details of the cause of the death at the Wakrah Stadium on Saturday were released. The Supreme Committee tasked with building World Cup sites did not name the worker or provide his nationality.

Qatar is relying heavily on migrant workers from South Asia to build infrastructure for the World Cup and labor conditions in the country have been regularly criticised by rights groups.
