Millions of expatriates work as laborers and in other jobs in Saudi Arabia.

In April last year, at least 10 construction workers from Pakistan and one from India died in the collapse of a convention center being built at a university in Qassim northwest of Riyadh – the Capital of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
