Ethiopian woman that was involved in a filmed Lebanese thugs abuse has killed herself , reports Nazret. The woman committed suicide after an earlier incident which was filmed after thugs were seen beating her outside the Ethiopian Embassy and trying to force her into a private car .

The violent and shocking video ( above ) of Ethiopian woman who has been recruited as a domestic worker in Lebanon shows how indifferent passersby were to her while being abused in public in daylight .

The woman is heard here crying for help in Arabic language while no one came to help her against the rogue members of the recruitment agency. Many people are seen passing-by while the culprits try to shove her into a private car. The incident has sparked anger among Ethiopian community who have demanded both the Ethiopian and the Lebanese governments to take action against the culprits of the act.

There are thousands of Ethiopian domestic workers in the Middle East particularly in Lebanon and incidents like have happened on several occasions without concrete steps being taken by the concerned governments.

The Ethiopian Embassy in Beiruit has demanded invetsigation into the case and a review of the whole domestic recruitment system of Ethiopian house maids into Lebanon.
