Suspects held in Qatar after UK teacher's body found
Doha, October 17, 2013
Qatar has arrested suspects over the murder of a European woman, the Interior Ministry said on Wednesday, after a British school teacher was found dead in the Gulf state.
British media said a 24-year-old woman identified as Lauren Patterson, a primary teacher at a British school in Qatar, went missing last Saturday, when she was seen with two men at a nightclub in the capital Doha.
"The police has arrested the suspects of a European woman's murder," the Interior Ministry said in a statement in English on its website.
"The case has been referred to Public Prosecution to complete further judicial procedures applicable in this regard," it added without giving any further details.
