How Qatar funds extremists across the Middle East

Qatar is the richest country in the world per capita – and has made significant investments into various iconic London landmarks.

Its sovereign wealth fund owns Knightsbridge department store Harrods and its property arm has invested substantially in the development of Chelsea Barracks. It also owns the Shard – currently the tallest building in the EU.

However, it has also played a significant role in funding groups across the Middle East who are extremely hostile to the West.
