Frustration grows over Saudi deportations

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.

    As Al Jazeera's Osama Bin Javaid explains, violence continues in many areas as frustration grows.
