World Cup Rocked By Shocking Death Of Second Journalist In 48
The FIFA World Cup has been rocked by the death of a second journalist in just 48 hours. The Gulf Times reported on Sunday that Qatari photojournalist Khalid al-Misslam had died “suddenly”.
“Al-Misslam, a Qatari, died suddenly while covering the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. We believe in Allah’s mercy and forgiveness for him, and send our deepest condolences to his family,” the Qatari outlet reported.
The circumstances surrounding Al-Misslam’s death are unclear at this stage. He had been working for the Qatari news channel Al Kass TV and was covering the World Cup.
The devastating news comes just 48 hours after American journalist Grant Wahl also died at the World Cup in Qatar. Wahl had previously been detained for trying to wear a rainbow short to a match, with homosexuality outlawed in the country. He had also written a number of scathing articles about Qatar and FIFA’s decision to host the World Cup in the Middle East for the first time ever.
