Qatar emir wounded, 8 killed as gunman attacks convoy


Emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani has been attacked on his way to his Palace, Al Fajr newspaper reported.

The gunmen fired at Qatari Emir’s motorcade, which crashed on the way to the Palace where the meeting between Qatari Emir and Russian envoy was to take place.

The incident left Qatari Emir injured, who was taken to hospital with other eight suffered.

Of course this attack will definitely not have anything to do with the only other news from Qatar today:
