3 domestic workers found dead across Lebanon

'In Tripoli, a Bengali domestic worker was found "slaughtered" in bathroom of her employer's house....On Sunday, another Ethiopian worker was found hanging from a tree in Ouzai.. The Labor Ministry revealed Monday the case of another Bengali domestic worker who fled her employer's house because she has not been paid since she started working for the man five years ago... Investigators determined that the woman is only 17 years old, meaning that she was only 12 when she first arrived in Lebanon and commenced her employment...' (The DailyStar)

And this is just the tip of the tragic iceberg.
