Back to Middle East

Qatar, an emirate in the Persian Gulf between Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, was under Turkish control from 1872 until the beginning of WWI. It became a British protectorate from 1916 to 1971. Qatar declared its independence in 1971. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Qatar.
