(AP) A relative of a Los Angeles couple arrested in Qatar says the two had gone there at the request of a Broomfield, Colo.-based engineering company that focuses on water infrastructure projects.


Matthew and Grace Huang are jailed on accusations that they starved their 8-year-old daughter, Gloria, to death, according to groups that are working on their case. The groups say the arrests are unjust. The Huangs' relatives say they've been falsely accused.


Grace Huang's brother Daniel Chin said in a statement Wednesday that Matthew Huang went to Qatar after MWH Global Inc. asked him to be an engineer on a project supporting the Doha World Cup 2022.


An MWH Global spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment late Wednesday.


The couple adopted Gloria from Ghana when she was 4. They say she had eating disorders stemming from malnourishment in early childhood.
