Doha, Qatar - Tens of thousands of migrant labourers - mostly from Nepal, India, and the Philippines - live and work in Qatar. However, criticism regarding the treatment of these workers is growing, with labour groups and human rights organisations condemning the government and employers for low wages, a lack of safety equipment, and squalid housing. 

Amnesty International is set to release a report, titled "The Dark Side of Migration", which claims there is widespread exploitation among employers, unpaid wages for workers, and the inability of workers to leave the country. 

The report follows previous exposes featured in both Al Jazeera and The Guardian.
