Migrant worker slavery in Qatar

"Last week, Qatar was given 12 months to end migrant worker slavery or face a possible United Nations investigation that could see it become the fifth country to face a formal inquiry by the International Labour Organisation. The move followed an ILO delegation to the Gulf state this month that also found migrant workers stranded for months without pay and stripped of their passports." (thanks Amir)
