The blast happened shortly after 10am this morning at a Turkish restaurant near Landmark Mall in the capital Doha, and left 30 more people suffering serious injuries.
Preliminary investigations suggest a faulty gas canister inside the restaurant may be to blame, with the explosion causing a fire that led to part of the building near a petrol station collapsing. link
Once again Qatar is in the news for expats being killed. I always have that fear of gas tanks exploding.
