Worldwide fears and violence over foreign workers have reached Saudi Arabia, where police in Riyadh killed two people, wounded another 68 and arrested more than 550 in an unprecedented crackdown on illegal migrants. Approximately 7 million foreign workers, more than 20 percent of the Saudi population, are in the country.

One of the casualties was a Saudi and the other was unidentified.
