The Emir of Qatar HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani return home to a rather spectacular homecoming celebration.
Thousands of people gathered at the Corniche last night to welcome home the Emir of Qatar. Sheikh Tamim was returning from his first trip abroad since the regional tension, and was welcomed with a festival fit for royalty.
