Saudi Binladen corporation workers protest

This video says about itself:

9 buses were set on fire in Makkah, Saudi Arabia by angry expatriate workers

Nine buses were set ablaze in the western Saudi city of Makkah by angry expatriate workers reportedly claiming that they had not received their wages.

A spokesperson for the Makkah civil defence said that their teams had to deal with seven buses torched near a worker’s accommodation belonging to the Binladen group. The buses were parked when they were set on fire on Saturday evening. Sources said that the workers started expressing their anger over their delayed wages in the afternoon when they broke the windows of some vehicles and the doors of some offices.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

SAUDI ARABIA: Workers at Saudi Binladen Group torched nine of the firm’s buses on Saturday night in anger at job cuts and non-payment of wages.

Thousands of migrant workers have been protesting in Mecca and Jeddah for weeks, some saying they have not been paid for six months.

The company was founded in 1931 by Mohammed bin Laden, father of late al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
