Qatari stadium work in Doha

Journalists have been arrested and held in Qatar while filming a documentary on conditions facing migrant workers ahead of the World Cup in 2022. A German television crew was held for 14 hours and say their equipment was seized and their recordings wiped. Qatari officials said the arrests in March were made because the TV crew did not have permission to film in the country – not because of the content. Human rights groups have expressed concerns about conditions for workers.
