Doha: Twelve people aged 23 to 55 are facing legal action for collecting samples from prohibited archaeological sites without permission and prior approval from relevant authorities and the directorate of Tourism and Antiquities.

Three South Africans, two Britons, two Gulf nationals, one Egyptian woman, one Pakistani, one Syrian and one Indian will stand trial next month, reported local Arabic daily Al-Raya.

The Public Prosecution charged them with collecting the samples illegally on March 21 and referred them to the court to stand trial.
