Mass evacuation of construction workers

More than 14,000 labourers and staff had to evacuated after a fire broke on the construction site for a new shopping centre which will be the largest in Qatar when it is opens later this year.

An official investigation has been launched into the cause of the blaze at the Mall of Qatar, which is very close to one of the football stadiums that will host the World Cup in 2022.

No casualties were reported and Qatar’s Civil Defence has yet to discover the cause of the fire which workers said broke out in the shopping complex’s entertainment centre.
