There are 8.8 million foreigners in Saudi Arabia, Labor Minister Dr. Ghazi al-Ghosaibi disclosed in May, a figure significantly higher than any that the government has previously reported. With an indigenous population of about 17 million, this means that there is almost one foreign resident for every two Saudi citizens.
The largest expatriate communities in Saudi Arabia include one million to 1.5 million people each from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, and another 900,000 each from Egypt, Sudan and the Philippines. There are also 500,000 workers from Indonesia, and another 350,000 from Sri Lanka, the majority of whom are women.

I know oif a Philipino woman who was going to visit a friend. She knocked in the wrong door, and some Saudi answered it. He grabbed her, pulled her in and raped her because she was not beiled. Then, when she wouldnt stop crying, he pushed her out the window, killing her. Nothing was done, no charges filed.

The same thing goes on in this country and you do not hear of it. Keep it in mind when you eat at the local Chinese joint or any number of other places that hire Illeagles or persons on Visas. I hope nobody thinks that Americans are above this and some law enforcement persons overlook things.
