Anger in Yemen over Saudi deportations

Migrant workers say they were threatened with imprisonment and violence to force them to leave the kingdom.

    Yemen says almost 60,000 of its citizens have returned home after Saudi Arabia deported labourers illegally working there.

    Many of these workers are complaining of their treatment in Saudi, and say they were threatened with imprisonment and violence to force them out of the country.

    The loss of the workers' incomes is also going to put more strain on Yemen's weak economy.
