A worker has died in a “work-related fatality” at the site of a 2022 World Cup stadium in Qatar, the country’s World Cup organizing body said late on Saturday.

The incident occurred on Saturday morning at the Al Wakrah Stadium and is being investigated, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy said in a statement. Al Wakrah was designed by the late British architect Zaha Hadid.

“It is with deep regret we announce a work-related fatality on one of our projects,” said the statement. It did not elaborate on the cause of death.

About 5,100 construction workers from Nepal, India and Bangladesh are building stadiums in Qatar.
