A foreign maid "falls to her" death in Beirut Lebanon and Lebanese government continues the coverup
Lebanese government does not release information about suicide of foreign domestic workers in Lebanon because they don't want to damage the pristine image of Lebanon. Human Rights Watch office in Beirut is too busy peddling Hariri and Syrian "revolution" propaganda to bother. This picture is from today. I noticed that news reports don't say that "she committed suicide" but they use instead the language of "fell to her death" as if to imply some sort of accidents while cleaning windows.
