Qatar Lifts Travel Ban Against US Couple

Tuesday, 02 December 2014 02:31 PM

 An American couple blocked from leaving Qatar after being cleared in the death of their 8-year-old adopted daughter are now free to go as early as Wednesday.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement Tuesday the tiny Gulf nation has lifted a travel ban against Matthew and Grace Huang.

Kerry said the U.S. applauds the decision, and is looking forward to seeing the Los Angeles couple reunited with their other children.

The Huangs were arrested in Qatar in January 2013 on murder charges following the death of their adopted daughter, Gloria, who was born in Ghana.

They spent months in jail before being released on their own recognizance in November 2013. A Qatari appeals court overturned the charges last Sunday.
