Thousands greet Qatar's emir on return home

Thousands greet Qatar's emir on return homeThousands of Qataris lined the streets of central Doha Sunday to welcome back the emir as he returned from his first trip abroad during the ongoing Gulf diplomatic crisis. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani travelled to Turkey, France, Germany and the US — where he addressed the UN General Assembly — his first overseas engagement since Qatar was isolated politically by neighbouring states. The emir was greeted by crowds numbering in their thousands as his car, part of a large convoy, wound its way slowly through the capital, said an AFP correspondent on the spot.
