None of us are likely shocked by the death of an employee deployed to the Middle East given the climate that exists. We might be more surprised though if we knew the reason was the same as that which often sparks domestic workplace violence, depression and retaliation for those who complained about him at work. According to the Dallas Business Journal those factors, other than some political or religious motivation, was what led to the death of an American employee of Hunt Oil who was supervising a drilling rig in Yemen. Also killed by the Yemeni carpenter before he killed himself, was a Canadian citizen and a fellow Yemeni.
