    A seven minute speech on Qatar's state television Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani told the world and his country he was handing over power to his son. The emir said it was time for a new generation to lead the emirate after his 18-year-rule. It is a rare step for a Gulf Arab ruler to voluntarily step down.
