Qatar's World Cup chief sees clear media bias

Hassan al-Thawadi believes host of 2022 World Cup was unfairly singled out by FIFA investigation of football corruption.

    The man in charge of organising the 2022 World Cup football tournament says Qatar has been the victim of "clear bias" from the media.

    Hassan al-Thawadi has told Al Jazeera that he believes the focus of the corruption investigation was unfairly on Qatar.

    Qatar was cleared of serious wrongdoing in the report that was put together for FIFA, football's governing body, by Michael Garcia, an American lawyer.

    Al-Thawadi says Garcia was entrusted with investigating all the countries who bid for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments, but Qatar was singled out.
