Cannibalism in Qatar

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Qatar, Breaking News, Food, Humanitarian Response

After a week of rumours about a case of cannibalism amongst a group of foreign workers in Doha, the story has finally been confirmed [1]. Qatari [2] points to an article [3] in the local press where doctors found a finger in the stomach of a worker who had come in with a severe stomach pain (which was a result of eating human flesh). Apparently the victim was eaten by four men after they murdered him – it seems they ate him in order to dispose of the body.

UPDATE : This story is not true. The local press mis-reported it.
