The Daily Star - Ethiopian worker commits suicide in south Lebanon, June 30, 2017

An Ethiopian domestic worker threw herself off the balcony of her employment agency Thursday. Lebanese Red Cross workers collected her body and security forces opened an investigation to determine the cause of the woman’s suicide, a security source told The Daily Star. In 2007, a Human Rights Watch report estimated domestic workers in Lebanon – who commonly face abuse and exploitation – were dying at a rate of more than one per week. Earlier this month, another Ethiopian domestic worker was found dead, hanging from a tree branch in the south Lebanon town of Blida.
