A group of Australian women who were strip-searched and examined at Doha airport are suing authorities in Qatar.
The women were ordered off a flight and checked for whether they had given birth after a baby was found in a bin at Hamad Airport in October 2020.
They described their experience as state-sanctioned assault and the incident sparked widespread outrage.
Qatar later apologised and one airport official was handed a suspended jail sentence.
