Zidane Named Qatar's World Cup Bid Ambassador

CEO of the Qatar 2022 Bid Committee Hassan Al-Thawadi (R) presents new official ambassador Zinedine Zidane with a personalised shirt in Doha
DUBAI - Former France midfielder Zinedine Zidane has been appointed ambassador for Qatar's attempt to host the 2022 World Cup, said the Gulf Arab state's bid committee.
Qatar's bid is one of nine for the finals but their main opposition is likely to come from Australia, Japan, South Korea and United States.
"Football is for everyone," Zidane said in a statement. "When I think of all the youth of the Middle East, what they're missing is an event like the World Cup.
"We had [the 2010 World Cup] in Africa and now it is time for the Middle East."

Rumah Rehat Tempat Pembunuhan Sosilawati

Inilah rumah berdarah lubuk mencabut nyawa
By Chairul Fahmy Hussaini 
SEKALI pandang, kawasan rumah rehat yang terletak di tengah-tengah ladang kelapa sawit di Gadong, Banting, serupa dengan rumah rehat lainnya.Halaman rumahnya yang luas diserikan lagi dengan pepohon rendang dan kandang yang menempatkan burung atau binatang peliharaan.Namun, persamaan itu setakat itu sahaja.

Kawasan seluas sebuah padang bola sepak itu, yang dimiliki pasangan peguam adik-beradik berusia 41 dan 38 tahun, dipercayai menjadi 'medan' mencabut nyawa jutawan kosmetik, Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya, dan tiga lelaki lain antara penghujung bulan lalu dengan awal bulan ini.
