The torturer is Lebanese, by the way: let An-Nahar brag about her

"The 30-year-old came to Libya from her native Ethiopia a year ago. At first, things seemed OK, but six months into her employment, she said, she was burned by Aline.  Three months later, the same thing happened again, this time much more seriously.  In soft tones, she said 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 water being poured over her head.
She peeled back the garment draped carefully over her body. Her chest, torso and legs are all mottled with scars -- some old, some still red, raw and weeping. As she spoke, clear liquid oozed from an open wound on her head." (thanks Salim)
