Police arrested an Ethiopian maid for assaulting her 75-year-old employer and burning her with hot water in Jbeil, north of Beirut, the state-run National News Agency reported Thursday.

NNA said that the house worker, 24, hit Samia Kh. on her head with a bronze statue and then sprayed her with hot water after she collapsed in her home in Mastita.

The assault caused first degree burns on the old woman's face and chest, the agency quoted the medical examiner as saying.

Samia was taken to Notre-Dame de Secours hospital in Jbeil.

She probably flipped from all the abuse. I don't blame her. Lebanon still think they're slaves.

I agree about the shameful systemic abuse of maids here. In this case though, we just don't know the facts.

stupid judgmental comment from someone who thinks he is civilized. The 75 y o poor woman is burned for god's sake. show some respect.

Thats why we need a modern country with civic laws... coz u cant judge on nothing in this country, everybody is innocent and theres no decent courts in a decent and trusted system, so it ends up usually the 'Strong aka az3ar' wins over the 'Weak aka edameh' everyday in Lebanon.

i couldn't agree more guys.the thing is since the so called foundation of the Lebanon state in 1920 ,it has always been dressed as a state while practically it has been and still is anything but.

Why the Lebanese employers abuse, haras ,bady and inhumanely treated their employees. am 100% sure is that Dinkinash B is not driven to allack this old lady unless she is bady treated or inhumanely abused. so this is a clear message to most of the Lebanese employers those who are worked at your homes are human being only economical matter make that these beloved our sisters are ur servant. Pls the Lebanese don't blacken your country image and pictures. I want also to say during the due prcess of law you should respect all of her right don't abuse her

the majority of foreign maids are decent good intentioned people that chose to come to lebanon to work and to escape the harsh social conditions in their countries. most lebanese employers are decent people that treat their maids fairly at least better than they are treated in their own countries. but then you have exceptions on both sides, i have heard of employers mistreating their maids and i have heard of maids eventhough in fewer cases mistreating and robbing their elderly employers. so we should not generalize and issue hasty judgements before we know all the facts.
