How the Taliban helped build stadiums for the World Cup in Qatar
The Taliban made millions from the World Cup, providing construction equipment to build stadiums in Qatar, reports The Telegraph.
A source from the Taliban office in Doha revealed that a large contingent of the Taliban leadership was living in Doha as of 2013, where they were engaged in long-running peace talks with the US and the UN.
"The Taliban invested a lot in the construction of the World Cup. They were paid millions," the source claimed, adding that they were each paid up to £10,000 per month for the machines."
Two senior Taliban sources described how officials were given lucrative stipends to live in the country during peace negotiations, which were then invested in heavy construction machinery.
