An Ethiopian woman who committed suicide in Saudi Arabia, she was being held in virtual slavery and decided suicide was the only way out. In Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to leave their home without a male escort and foreigners who are on work permit are not allowed to leave the country without the approval of their employer, who usually confiscate the employee's passport and identity papers. This is a precarious situation for a foreign woman to be in, she can be held in a home with no means whatsoever of getting out or returning to her country. After numerous attempts to return to Ethiopia were blocked, and constant abuse from her Arab employers, she decided that suicide was the only way out.
