The Uzbek company Enter Engineering has started paying overdue salaries to workers after they rioted over the back wages owed from the construction of a large gas-to-liquid facility.
An official who identified himself as a member of the company's special group investigating the mass protest told RFE/RL on October 22 that the workers' salaries are being paid off. Several workers confirmed to RFE/RL that they had received their overdue salaries for the past three months.
On October 21, thousands of workers at the facility under construction in the Guzor district rioted, storming the facility's administration building.
