Angry workers went on a rampage on two construction sites in Dubai Wednesday, demanding improved working conditions. Employed by the Al Naboodah, the workers are employed at two prestigious projects in Dubai – Airport Terminal 1 and Burj Dubai.

Problems commenced initially at the Burj Dubai site on Tuesday evening where workers started protesting against a payment delay.

 

Some 4,000 workers on the emerging Burj Dubai tower and surrounding housing developments clashed with security forces Tuesday night, broke into temporary offices and smashed computers and files, and destroyed about two dozen cars and construction equipment, witnesses said.
