Angry migrant workers burnt 9 buses belonging to the Saudi-owned Bin Laden Group in the holy city of Mecca on Saturday evening after they failed to receive their wages from the latter.

The spokesperson for the Mecca Civil Defense, Nayef Al-Sharif, said that their teams discovered 7 buses torched near the work site – an additional 2 buses were later set ablaze as well.

 

No one was reportedly killed or wounded, but an investigation is underway by the Saudi authorities.

The migrant workers were reportedly agitated over the Bin Laden Group’s failure to pay several weeks worth of wages.

Landlords and power whores
On my people they took turns
Dispute the suits I ignite
And then watch ’em burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
