Indonesia has sent a special team to Saudi Arabia after thousands of undocumented Indonesian workers rioted outside its consulate in Jeddah.

The workers are trapped in Saudi, living illegally, because either their visas have run out, or they have lost their jobs.

Part of the problem is a new law which forces companies to hire one Saudi national for every 10 migrant workers, pushing many foreigners out of work.
