30-year-old Shweyga Mullah came to Libya from her native Ethiopia a year ago. At first things seemed OK, but then six months into her employment she said she was burned by Aline. In soft tones, she explained how Aline lost her temper when her daughter wouldn't stop crying and Mullah refused to beat the child. "She took me to a bathroom. She tied my hands behind my back, and tied my feet. She taped my mouth, and she started pouring the boiling water on my head like this," she said, imitating the vessel of scalding hot water being poured over her head. After one attack, "There were maggots coming out of my head, because she had hidden me, and no one had seen me," Mullah said.
