Twitter users have posted several photos of what appears to be a strike by construction workers at King Abdullah Financial District in the Saudi capital Riyadh today. The workers are said to protest for being unpaid by the project contractor Saudi Binladn Group (SBG), but some people speculated that it might be related to the Ministry of Labor’s decision to increase the fees on foreign workers visas.
