Group Qatari blog Doha News reports [1]:

Some 66 percent of job applicants for nursing positions at state hospitals last year were found to have forged their educational qualifications, the Supreme Council of Health has said.

Some 13 percent of people applying for jobs as doctors and 21 percent up for paramedic posts also submitted fake documents.

The fraudsters were caught after their degrees were cross-checked.
