Qatar Foundation had organised a march across the Education City campus in support of the Chapel Hill murders which was attended by close to 1,000 people.
HE Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani and US Ambassador to Qatar Dana Shell Smith were among those who led the walk. The walk started from near Hamad Bin Khalifa University Student Centre at Education City and proceeded in silence passing through all branch campuses. It ended at the Education City Ceremonial Court, where a minute of silence was observed. A video from the sister of Deah Barakat, one of the slain students, was aired in which she said, “It is amazing that Qatar is thinking about us and our family. We want to spread the message that love overcomes hate.”
