Following the notice, a number of people willing to work in the kingdom started crowding the district employment and manpower offices, creating chaos.
Security officials at the expatriates’ welfare office in the capital’s Eskaton were struggling to control the crowd on Thursday. Several altercations between the crowd and the officials also took place.
