Jordan police recover bodies of two Asian women

Posted on Updated on

I know the following is a cut and paste job from ‘AFP’ but it’s scary thought that this horrific act has happened in Amman, Jordan. It’s not something that I have heard of in the past two years or so that I had been in Jordan. I really hope this does not become the normal way of dealing with problems, as it has become in some other parts of the world.

AMMAN — Jordanian police said on Saturday that they had recovered the bodies of two Asian women which had been dumped in plastic bags in a public waste bin north of the capital.

“Police recovered the bodies of two young women of Asian appearance from a public waste bin in the Jubeiha district, north of Amman, on Friday,” police spokesman Mohammad Khatib said.

A member of the public had spotted the bodies in sealed plastic waste sacks and alerted police, Khatib said, adding that the nationalities of the two women remained unclear but they had probably been working as maids.

Initial examination suggested that both women had been strangled.

Some 70,000 migrant labourers work as domestic servants in Jordan, the great majority of them women.

Some 30,000 come from Indonesia, 15,000 from the Philippines and 25,000 from Sri Lanka, according to labour ministry figures.

    What do you mean “cut and paste job”?

      It means I have not written the article, but only taken from another source. I have sourced where the article is from but gave my thoughts at the bottom.
