Trapped maids face life of abuse in Lebanon
By Yara Bayoumy
An Ethiopian housemaid lies bandaged in a government hospital after falling from a 12th floor balcony. She says her Lebanese employer pushed her off.
“Madam asked me to hang the clothes. Then she came and pushed me from behind,” the 25-year-old woman told Reuters. Too frightened to let her name be published, she said her employer had frequently threatened and abused her.
