Beirut ( AsiaNews / Agencies) - Maronite Patriarch Bechara Rai is in Qatar since yesterday, on an official visit at the invitation of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al- Thani. He will raise the question of the two Orthodox bishops kidnapped in Syria last April with the Qatari authorities and ask for their cooperation.
