Expat health insurance policyholders in Saudi Arabia might have been caught up in a recent protest calling on the government to provide employment opportunities for graduates.
Campaigners have been involved in a rare public display of dissatisfaction after official data revealed that unemployment in the kingdom rose to 10.5 per cent last year.
More than 200 unemployed graduates took to the streets in front of the Ministry of Education last Saturday (August 28th) to complain about the lack of jobs for those with Arabic language degrees.
One protester told EarthTimes: "We decided to study for this degree based upon assurances that the Ministry of Education would continue to need new people with Arabic language specialisations for the next ten years."
Second deputy premier Prince Naif, who is also interior minister, has echoed the protesters' calls for more job opportunities for Saudi Arabian youths.
According to the nation's Ministry of Economy and Planning, the expatriate population in Saudi Arabia has reached 6.1 million, taking the total population to over 27 million.
