Maid ends life after claiming to see ghosts

An Ethiopian housemaid committed a suicide by hanging herself at her employer’s house in Saudi Arabia after claiming she had kept seeing ghosts.

Her employing family found the maid hanged by a rope at her room adjoining their house in the central town of Shaqra just after sunset.

“Police said they were told by her employers the maid had claimed she kept seeing jinn (ghosts)…they said the maid could have suffered from mental problems,” the Arabic language daily Alsaudeh said.
