On January 31, 2012

Lebanese news website reported last Sunday evening that, according to Lebanese security sources, a Nepalese domestic worker hung herself in her employer's house in Ashrafieh, a Christian suburb of Beirut. Her employers discovered the body hanging on the kitchen balcony. The Lebanese Red Cross and security forces headed to the location to investigate.

This news came just one day before the Guardian published a report about Lila, a Nepalese who was trafficked into slavery and committed suicide in Lebanon.
