The murder of British teacher Lauren Patterson was 'heinous, foreign and shocking to a society as conservative as Qatar’s', according to the prosecutor in the case.
A Qatari man, Badr Hashem Khamis Abdallah, has been sentenced to death, with an accomplice jailed for three years in connection with the death, according to local media.
During the trial the defence team claimed that Patterson's death was an accident and that both men were forced into confessing to the crime.
