Embassy: Egyptian construction worker dies on Qatar site

A man in his mid-20s died yesterday when a wall at a construction site in Bin Mahmoud fell on him, the Egyptian Embassy in Qatar has said.

Another Egyptian national was injured in the incident and was expected to be released from hospital later today, labour counsellor Yasir Said told Doha News.

He said it was not immediately clear what company the men worked for, as many construction firms use subcontractors and labor supply firms to help complete their projects.

There was no activity today at the site of an under-construction eight-floor residential building on Zuair Bin Amr St., between Al Quds St. and Al Jazeera St.
