In this Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013 photo, Saudi security forces watch Ethiopians gather as they wait to be repatriated in Manfouha, southern Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, garbage has piled up on streets around the mosque housing the tomb of the Prophet Muhammad. Groceries stores have shut their doors and almost half of the kingdom’s small construction firms have stopped working on projects. The economic chaos comes as part of Saudi Arabia’s crackdown on migrant workers, which began Nov. 4, targets the country’s more than 9 million foreign laborers.
