Qatar says stadium safety enhanced after worker dies

Qatar World Cup organisers have come under fire over stadium construction safety.

DOHA, Qatar -- Qatari World Cup organisers say an investigation into the death of a worker on a stadium construction site has led to "extended oversight" of health and safety procedures.

The man, who organisers have said was the first to die in a work-related accident, was named on Wednesday as Anil Kumar Pasman from Nepal. He was 29 when he was killed while working on Al Wakrah Stadium last month.

The stadium's contractors say Pasman was hit by a water tanker whose driver "was tragically unaware of his colleague's close proximity" and out of sight.

Hassan Al Thawadi, secretary general of the 2022 World Cup organising committee, says there is "always more to be done" enforcing health and safety.

The tiny, gas-rich country is relying on its large workforce of Asian laborers to build stadiums and related infrastructure for the first World Cup in the Middle East.
