(CNN) - The Sunday Times reports Qatar paid millions of dollars in bribes to secure the 2022 World Cup.

The newspaper claimed it has documents which show Qatari football official Mohamed Bin Hammam paid $5 million to bring the soccer tournament to the small country on the Persian Gulf.

Qatar's World Cup Organizing Committee denies the allegations and says its lawyers are looking into the matter.
