Lebanon: Nepalese migrant worker found dead, dangling from a rope

On August 2, 2010

Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar reported today that, last Friday, a Nepalese migrant worker, Leila A. (40 years) was found hanging from her neck and dangling from a rope tied to her windows' steel defenses in Fanar, North of Beirut. The cause of the incident and its circumstances remain unclear, and reports have said - according to Al-Akhbar - that Leila moved to her new employers' house two days prior to her death.
