Yet ANOTHER Journalist Has Died Covering The World Cup!

A second journalist who was in Qatar for the World Cup of soccer passed away on Saturday, but no definitive cause of death has been established.

According to the Daily Mail, Qatari photojournalist Khalid al-Misslam who worked for Al Kass TV has passed away.

The photojournalist passed away “recently,” according to a tweet about his passing from the Qatar-based news source Gulf Times. No new details concerning his passing had been made public as of Monday.

After reporter Grant Wahl passed away on Friday, the timing of the second death of a journalist caused some to wonder, with one American soccer training facility tweeting, “What is going on?”

According to the New York Post, Wahl’s brother, Eric, made remarks following his death that implied his brother might have been assassinated due to the reporter’s animosity toward the Qatari regime.

On Twitter, Eric Wahl continued to make remarks against his brother.

Eric Wahl issued more comments about his brother on Twitter.

On the day before he died, Grant Wahl said he had bronchitis, according to the Post.

“My body I think told me, even after the U.S. went out, ‘dude, you are not sleeping enough.’ It rebelled on me. So I’ve had a case of bronchitis this week. I’ve been to the medical clinic at the media center twice now, including today,” he said on his podcast.

“I’m feeling better today I basically canceled everything on this Thursday that I had and napped. And I’m doing slightly better. I think you can probably tell in my voice that I’m not 100 percent,” he said.

Also on Saturday, a World Cup security guard fell from what has been described as a “significant height” after Friday night’s quarter-final game between Argentina and the Netherlands,  according to the Guardian.

The guard is reported by the Guardian to be a migrant worker and was in stable but critical condition.
