A team from the Philippine Consulate General in Jeddah has been mobilized to Najran to talk to the victims' employers.  "For the immediate repatriation of the remains of the victims and secure whatever benefits that are due them as well as to ascertain from local authorities the real cause of the fire," Cayetano said.
