Bayern Munich fans accuse club of turning blind eye to Qatar

MUNICH (AP) Bayern Munich fans fed up with the club’s longstanding links with Qatar are taking a stand against the club's lack of action in response to allegations of human rights abuses in the country.

Around 150 fans packed into a room in Munich’s EineWeltHaus (One World House) on Thursday to hear a panel including two migrant workers from Qatar discuss its treatment of foreign workers in the country before it hosts the 2022 World Cup.

They accused Bayern of turning a blind eye to horrific working conditions in the sovereign state while it accepts sponsorship deals and holds winter training camps in the country.
