Organisers of the 2022 Foot Ball World Cup in Qatar say they are "dismayed" by claims that migrant workers who fitted their offices are still waiting to be paid.

Workers from Nepal, Sri Lanka and India say they are still owed 13 months' wages after the contractor collapsed.

Some workers had been left stranded in the country, working for as little as 0.85 dollars a day.

In May, Qatar vowed to improve the rights of migrants in the Gulf state amid growing alarm at their treatment.

But an investigation by the British newspaper found migrants who had worked on the Qatar 2022 offices in the Al Bidda skyscraper in Doha were still waiting for their pay.
