Second Journalist Dies Suddenly While Covering World Cup in Qatar: ‘What Is Going On?’

Published on

The cause of death of a second journalist covering the World Cup in Qatar on Saturday has not yet been determined.

According to the Daily Mail, Khalid al-Misslam, a Qatari photographer for Al Kass TV, has passed away.

Gulf Times, a Qatar-based news company, sent a tweet regarding his death claiming the photojournalist passed away ”recently.” As of Monday, no additional information has been disclosed concerning his demise.

The timing of the second death of a journalist, following on the heels of Friday’s loss of reporter Grant Wahl, raised eyebrows, with one soccer training facility in the U.S. tweeting, “What is going on?”

Eric Wahl, Wahl’s brother, said following Wahl’s death that his brother may have been assassinated, citing the reporter’s hostility for the Qatari regime, as reported by the New York Post.

Eric Wahl tweeted further comments regarding his brother.

According to the Post, Grant Wahl reported having bronchitis the day before he passed away.

“My body I think told me, even after the U.S. went out, ‘dude, you are not sleeping enough.’ It rebelled on me. So I’ve had a case of bronchitis this week. I’ve been to the medical clinic at the media center twice now, including today,” he said on his podcast.

“I’m feeling better today I basically canceled everything on this Thursday that I had and napped. And I’m doing slightly better. I think you can probably tell in my voice that I’m not 100 percent,” he said.

Also on Saturday, according to the Guardian, a World Cup security guard fell from a “significant height” during Friday night’s quarterfinal match between Argentina and the Netherlands.

According to the Guardian, the guard was a migrant laborer in stable but serious condition.

A Filipino employed to repair lights in a parking lot died after a fall earlier in the tournament.

After the worker’s death, Nasser al-Khater, the president of Qatar’s World Cup operations, stated, “death is a natural part of life – whether it’s at work, whether it’s in your sleep.”
