  • Qatar World Cup workers 'on 45p ($0.76) an hour'

    A computer generated image shows the stadium to be built in Al-Wakrah for the Qatar 2022 World CupWorkers constructing a stadium for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar are being paid as little as 45p ($0.76, 0.57 euros) an hour, British newspaper The Guardian reported on Wednesday. Stadium workers also told The Guardian that their passports were being held by their manager, in an apparent contravention of the organisers' own welfare charter. A spokesperson for the Qatar World Cup's Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy told The Guardian: "There are challenges with calculation of overtime pay and hours, and we are working with the contractor to rectify any non-compliance."




  • U.N. battles for more people-trafficking convictions

    Illegal migrants from Guatemala, deported from Phoenix, Arizona in the U.S., walk after arriving at an air force base in Guatemala CityGlobal efforts to stop the multi-billion-dollar business of trafficking in people are being hampered by perceptions that it is a soft crime unlikely to be punished, the head of the U.N. drugs and crime office told Reuters. Of the 159 countries who have ratified a 2000 U.N. protocol to prevent and combat such trafficking, 15 percent did not record a single conviction between 2010 and 2012, compared with 16 percent of countries between 2007 and 2010, he said. "That, of course, could not be considered as a success," said Yury Fedotov, executive director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. "People should understand that people-trafficking is a serious crime." Another 25 percent of countries recorded 10 or fewer convictions in 2010-12, making conviction rates for trafficking as rare as those for homicides in Iceland or kidnappings in Norway, the United Nations says.




  • Iraqi Kurdish pipeline stopped; tanker in limbo off Texas

    The oil tanker United Kalavyrta approaches Galveston, TexasBy Humeyra Pamuk and David Sheppard ISTANBUL/LONDON (Reuters) - Iraqi Kurdistan's attempts to export oil independently of Baghdad hit another obstacle on Wednesday, as a Turkish energy official and industry sources said the autonomous region's pipeline to the Mediterranean has been shut for the past week. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has not launched any oil tankers from the Turkish port of Ceyhan in over a month as Baghdad has moved to block the vessels from unloading at foreign ports. The latest set-back comes as Iraqi Kurdistan's increasingly bitter legal and diplomatic struggle with Baghdad over oil sales threatens to spill over into the United States.
