SIDON, Lebanon: A Bangladeshi domestic worker committed suicide in her employer's house northeast of Sidon, security sources told The Daily Star.

Citing preliminary investigation, the sources said Shahnaz Beeka, in her 30s, was found hanging from the window by a pair of pantyhose that was wrapped around her neck.

The employer, Sobhi al-Ghazawi, told police that he found Beeka in that position when he arrived at his house in the village of Sharhabeel.

The woman had been employed at Ghazawi's house for 15 days.

Meanwhile, a 63-year-old Syrian man also committed suicide when he shot himself in the city of Baalbek in the Bekaa Valley Wednesday, security sources said, adding that the man was suffering from cancer.
