The difficult count of workers who died in Qatar

Along with the ecological question, this is the other major controversy that has dogged Qatar since FIFA decided to grant the organization of the 2022 World Cup to the small emirate: how many workers have died on the construction sites of Qatari stadiums?

Statistics exist, but they present very different realities. If the British daily The Guardian mentions 6,500 deaths – a figure that does not only concern stadium construction sites – the organizing committee of the World Cup only lists… 3 dead. Our journalist Alban Traquet, who was able to investigate this question, takes stock and mentions in passing the reality of working conditions in Qatar.
