Ethiopian Review has copy/pasted a couple of articles in English on the death of Ethiopian maids in Lebanon. I'd appreciate if you read the comments of Ethiopians under these articles, just to get a sort of feedback from Ethiopians.
One comment says: "the suicides committed by the Ethiopian maids, should be considered murders because their employer were the cause of these unfortunate cases. It seems that these women thought they escaped from struggle and poverty at home when they arrived at Lebanon. They didn't leave their home land because they wanted to, but because poverty and lack of work made them look else where for improvement."
