human rights in Qatar

I’m still planning to attend Worlds 2018 in Qatar. That would be my 3rd visit. I like the tiny nation and the people there.

The German Bundesliga (soccer) champions are in Qatar for their January winter training camp. For the 8th time.

Human Rights Watch’s Wenzel Michalski criticizes the trip, urging the club to publicly address human rights issues.

Here’s the other major issue:

Last summer, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE, and Egypt cut off diplomatic ties with Doha and imposed a land, sea, and air blockade on the Gulf state.

The quartet accuses Qatar of funding “extremist” groups and being too close to its regional rival, Iran, accusations the Qataris vehemently deny.
