An Ethiopian housemaid in Saudi Arabia pushed the four-year-old son of her employer on a boiling milk pot, causing severe burns to his body.
It was the latest in a series of attacks by Ethiopian domestic workers on children at their employer’s houses in Saudi Arabia, which last week said it was halting the hiring of housemaids from that east African country.
“A Saudi father reported his Ethiopian housemaid to the police after she pushed his four-year-old son on a boiling milk pot, inflicting severe burns on him,” the Arabic language daily Alsaudeh said in a report from the northern town of Skaka.
It said police arrested the unnamed maid while the boy was admitted to hospital for treatment. It did not mention the reason for the maid’s act.
