A Filipina housemaid suffered a hand injury after she tried to stop an Ethiopian maid working in the same house in Kuwait from trying to kill her employer’s little daughter, newspapers in the Gulf emirate reported on Tuesday.
The Filipina jumped at the Ethiopian maid when she saw her running towards their employer’s seven-year-old daughter with a knife.
Just before she tried to stab the girl, the Filipina reached the maid and pushed her away, prompting the Ethiopian to stab her in the hand.
Newspapers said the Ethiopian maid was arrested while the Filipina was taken to hospital. They gave no other details.
