Qatar to investigate alleged labour abuses

The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee has said that government authorities are investigating allegations in a British daily that dozens of migrant Nepalese workers have died in recent weeks, Reuters has reported. A report by the Guardian said thousands of Nepalese workers were enduring labour abuses as Qatar prepares to host the 2022 World Cup. "Like everyone viewing the video and images, and reading the accompanying texts, we are appalled by the findings presented in the Guardian's report," the committee said. "The health, safety, well-being and dignity of every worker that contributes to staging the 2022 Fifa World Cup are of the utmost importance to our committee."
