Ethiopia, Jan 13 – An Ethiopian city has banned smoking in public places with fines more than an average monthly wage, the first city in the country to do so, reports said Tuesday.

The decision by the northeastern city of Mekele, capital of the Tigray region, makes smoking illegal in bars, restaurants, schools and hospitals, as well as outdoors in stadiums and during religious festivals.

Advertising tobacco is also banned, Ethiopian media reported.

Fines have been set at $50 for individuals and $150 for owners of bars or restaurants, a stiff punishment in a country where average monthly salaries are less than $40, according to the World Bank.

Ethiopia’s parliament last year voted to ban smoking in public places to combat tobacco-related diseases, but the law had not been enforced until now.

Nearly one in 10 young Ethiopians smoke, according to the World Health Organization.

Ethiopian maid leaps to her death in south Lebanon | News , Lebanon News | THE DAILY STAR


Ethiopian maid leaps to her death in south Lebanon | News , Lebanon News | THE DAILY STAR.

BEIRUT: An Ethiopian maid was killed Monday after jumping off the balcony of her employer’s house in south Lebanon in an apparent suicide, media reports said.

A graphic image showing the picture of the young woman was circulated on social media in the aftermath of the alleged suicide in the southern village of Zrarieh.

The circumstances of the maid’s death were vague. Future TV said woman was 20 years old, and that she jumped from the second floor of the building.

Numerous local and international organizations have established projects to try to protect migrant workers in Lebanon who face widespread abuse lack basic rights, according to human rights organizations.

The incident came two weeks after a migrant domestic worker was found hanged, and another jumped off the balcony of her employer’s home in Beirut but survived.

A week before that, another maid leapt to her death in southern Lebanon.

The incident comes less than a week after a maid leapt to her death in south Lebanon.

About 200,000 foreign domestic workers work in Lebanon under the much-criticized sponsorship system, which bounds the maid to the employer.

Human Rights Watch and other organizations have called on Lebanese authorities to address the “high levels of abuse and deaths” of maids in the country.

HRW in 2008 recorded an average of one maid death a week in Lebanon by unnatural causes, including suicides.
