Switzerland FIFA Qatar Soccer World Cup-6

Flags of the union UNIA are reflected in the FIFA logo during a demonstration in front of the FIFA headquarters against the working conditions for the soccer World Cup 2022 in Qatar, Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013. FIFA opened a two-day board meeting Thursday that will discuss whether to move the 2022 World Cup in Qatar from the traditional summer dates. FIFA President Sepp Blatter has been pushing for a switch but will likely meet opposition from Europe and the United States. They want FIFA to consult widely before agreeing to a change from the usual June-July slot to avoid the extreme heat in the tiny desert nation. (AP Photo/Keystone, Steffen Schmidt)
