Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's trip to World Cup paid for by Qatar government

(Minneapolis, MN)  --  A Minnesota congresswoman considered by some observers to be a human rights activist is found to have gone on a trip paid for by a country criticized for human rights abuses.  

U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar's annual financial disclosure filed in May shows that Qatar covered the cost of her visit to the Middle Eastern nation last November.  

She attended the FIFA World Cup and met with Qatari government leaders.  

Qatar has been criticized for abusing migrant workers and criminalizing same-sex relationships.  

The cost of Omar's trip was not made public.
