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.”
