    Maltreated maid in video aired on Lebanon TV kills herself
    Scenes of Ethiopian worker being dragged, beaten sparked national outrage

    BEIRUT — An Ethiopian housemaid in Lebanon committed suicide on Wednesday, Ethiopia's consul general said, a week after video footage of her being dragged along the streets by a man and forced into a car sparked national outrage.

    "I went to the hospital today and they said that she hanged herself at 6 o'clock this morning," Asaminew Debelie Bonssa told Reuters, adding that the maid, Alem Dechasa, had been taken to hospital in order to recover from her forcible abduction.
    "I am deeply shocked. I went to see her yesterday and I was told that she was ok," said Bonssa.
    Last week, Lebanese television channel LBCI sparked nationwide indignation after broadcasting footage of a man violently dragging Dechasa along a street in Beirut and screaming at her to "get into the car."
    Another man was then seen helping to force Dechasa into the back of the car while she squirmed and screamed "no, no, no."

    Oh I'm sure something like that happened. The internet is such a wonderful thing. Eventually, much crime and stupidity will end

    It's against the rules to add people's property, in its entirety, without including their permission, a link, something that keeps it within the confines of our rules.

    I've corrected your opening post ... so that the entire story isn't there ... and went and found a link ... and included it.

    You and i have been here before, many times, and i won't do this work for you again.

    Next time ... you just won't be able to post or some other consequence.

    Now ... back to the topic ...

    It's terrible. Here's a link to the story and the video ... just terrible.

    Much Love and Peace.
