“In this context, the NDIA Steering Committee commends the efforts of the Ministry of Interior represented by the Department of Civil Defence for their commitment to raising standards of safety and security in Qatar,” the statement said.

AlJazeera Media Network will hold its 9th International Documentary Film Festival next month from Thursday,18th April to Sunday,21st April 2013.
With 205 Films shortlisted for Final Competition from 1392 entries by 33 different countries, this Festival is for sure huge and remarkable.
This year's theme is chosen as “Windows” as an expression of our openness to the whole world and our lively interaction with it and therefore each picture we see in the participating documentaries metaphorically resembles an ‘open window’ to a world that is rich in art and culture.
The Films would be screened in various Halls in Doha Sheraton Hotel and is Open to Public with Free of Charge.
Personally, I myself have attended past Festivals & it’s indeed a great experience.
Looks like Doha now has it's very own tour bus. And I am guessing that you can Hop ON and Hop OFF as indicated by the signage on the bus. Looks fab doesn't it.
So it would seem that Qatar is becoming more tourist orientated. I am looking forward to Hopping ON this myself.
How many of you switched off your lights yesterday for EARTH HOUR DAY. And what did you do during that time (when it was switched off) :)
