The circumstances of an Ethiopian domestic worker's recent death were thrown into question Friday when local media reports implicated her employers and the head of a domestic worker employment office in her death.Lombibo had been employed in Lebanon under the "kafala" system, which enables employers to sponsor migrant domestic workers.Reports emerged Thursday via local news channel Al-Jadeed that Lombibo had given birth to a child, who died as a result of birth defects, just two days before her own death – a fact that had previously gone unreported to the public.The employers claimed on camera to Al-Jadeed that Lombibo had gone willingly to Hoteit's house the next day, but a video the channel obtained purportedly showed Lombibo on the ground in front of the open door of a car, visibly distressed and shouting repeatedly, at one point, "My baby, my baby!"
