MidEast shares fell as oil prices slumped again.

Oil futures declined 8% on Tuesday.

Mild support stemmed, though, from steadier equity markets around the world.

In company, Jabal Omar said it cancelled a 1.6 billion riyal ($427 million) contract with a construction firm because both sides needed to review it.

Saudi Telecom's (STC) CEO told Reuters on Tuesday the firm expected to spend another $1 billion in the second half of 2015 on enhancing its networks to meet surging demand for web-based services.
