Maltreated, Alern Dechasa: a housemaid by trade and the lady in this video, which was aired on Lebanon TV committed suicide

An Ethiopian housemaid in Lebanon committed suicide on Wednesday, Ethiopia’s consul general said, and a week after video footage of her being dragged along the streets by a man and forced into a car sparked national outrage.
