Kenyan woman brutally assaulted in Lebanon to be deported

The victims, identified as Rosa and Shamila, were arrested after the incident and taken to a military court.

A lawyer representing the two women said the deportation order against Shamila was in violation of her basic human rights of a fair trial adding that she has not been told the reason for her deportation.

Criticism

The incident drew sharp criticism on social media with regards to mistreatment of migrant domestic workers in Lebanon.

At least 200,000 migrant domestic workers are said to live in the country with a majority of them coming from Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Kenya.
