About 100 migrant construction sector workers held a demonstration over the late payment of wages on 22 May, blocking a main road in the Msheireb district of Doha, and clapping and chanting before peacefully dispersing. The labour ministry promised to investigate the workers’ complaints and ensure that outstanding salaries were paid.
