Qatar denies request by US couple charged with child starvation to leave, see other children

DOHA, Qatar - A Qatari court has turned down a request from an American couple charged with starving their adopted daughter to death that they be allowed to leave the Gulf country temporarily to see their other children.

Matthew and Grace Huang were jailed by Qatari authorities on murder charges last January following the death of their 8-year-old adopted daughter, Gloria. They were released from detention in November but are banned from leaving Qatar while their trial continues.

Their defence team asked Wednesday that they be allowed to travel and presented a letter from a doctor treating their two children recommending that they be reunited with their parents in the U.S.

The request was denied pending a final verdict expected at the next court hearing on March 27.
