Thousands of migrant workers waiting to leave the kingdom after surrendering amid new protests and violence.

    More than 23,000 Ethiopian workers have surrendered to Saudi authorities. It follows a crackdown on illegal immigrants in the kingdom.

    Thousands more migrant workers are waiting to be deported while others have taken to the streets in anger. Three people, including a Saudi national, were killed in clashes on Saturday.
