The Egyptian Consulate in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah ended a half-day sit-in of 4000 Egyptian workers at Jeddah Airport late Wednesday. The Egyptian airport workers were protesting a Saudi citizen who slapped his Egyptian colleague, causing a brawl between the workers and airport security and the arrest of four of the Egyptian workers.
Egyptian Consul Adel al-Alfy sent a delegation to the airport on Wednesday afternoon to address the situation, according to Egypt's state-run Al-Ahram newspaper. The delegation's visit resulted in the Saudi worker apologizing to his Egyptian colleague. Airport security then released the four detained Egyptian workers.
