CNN reports on a video that appears to show a Saudi man beating a migrant worker is causing growing outrage in Saudi Arabia. In the video, which went viral after it was posted on YouTube, a male worker in an orange jumpsuit is first seen sitting on a floor, scared and submissive. A man who government officials believe is Saudi begins tormenting the victim, angry because he thinks the worker has spoken to his wife.
The problem appears to go beyond this individual incident, with avuse of migrant workers more common than one would hope.
