Lebanon: "Falling" Ethiopian dies in Shoueifat

On February 17, 2010

Al-Akhbar newspaper reported today the "fall" of Ethiopian national Ambet Spuka, born in 1987, from the 4th floor of her employer's house, Hanan S, in Shoueifat, South of Beirut. Ambet died before arriving to hospital.

In addition, we note that no follow up coverage whatsoever was done in Lebanese media on the case of the two Nepalese nationals who "fell" last month from the balcony of a migrant domestic workers employment agency!!

This is the text of Al-Akhbar:

«سقوط» عاملة إثيوبية في الشويفات

سقطت المواطنة الإثيوبية أمبت سبوكا (مواليد 1986) من الطبقة الرابعة في محلة الشويفات، وما لبثت أن فارقت الحياة قبل أن تنقل إلى المستشفى. وأوردت المعلومات أن السيدة الإثيوبية تعمل لدى المواطنة اللبنانية حنان ص.
