Terror attacks force firms in Saudi Arabia to pay ‘danger money’

Western
firms operating in Saudi Arabia are offering staff large sums in ‘danger money’
to persuade them to stay in the aftermath of recent Al Qaeda attacks, according
to the Guardian

BAE
Systems, the British-owned defence company, is offering expatriate employees an
extra £1,000 a month to stay.

The
newspaper quotes an unnamed source at BAE who said the payments were to
compensate for disruptions, including constraints on freedom of movement and
finding new properties to rent.
