More than 50 workers have been rescued from a fire in a building under construction at The Pearl in Doha in the Gulf State of Qatar.

The Doha News website says construction workers on the upper floors of the building were trapped and a crane was used to rescue them.

A fire at a shopping mall in Doha last week killed 19 people including New Zealand triplets, Lillie, Jackson and Willsher Weekes, aged two years.
