Maid found hanging in East Lebanon

Good morning Lebanon.
Just another regular day here.

A 29-year-old foreign domestic worker was found hanging by the neck in her employer's East Lebanon home Sunday in an apparent suicide, state news reported.

The National News agency said the Bangladeshi woman used clothes to hang herself in the Zahle town of al-Marj. The report said the woman was a victim of human trafficking by a local tribe.

Suicides are common among Lebanon's domestic workers, many of whom face slavery-like conditions inside family homes.
