Finally, an amateur captured on video scenes of violence against a domestic worker, an Ethiopian girl. The video was aired on the local Lebanese television channel LBC. The Ethiopian victim was trying to get to her country's embassy, when her employer/agent dragged her by force to the car.
Human Rights groups and local activists have been reporting heavily on the abuse of domestic workers in Lebanon, where there are growing demands for more protection and law enforcement in such cases.
