Allegedly Abused By Pres. Assad's Cousin, Filipinas Flown Home

MANILA--Two Filipinas who were employed as domestic workers of a cousin of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad are back in the Philippines, bringing with them nothing but their mobile phones and stories of hardship and abuse, reports GMA News. One of the women were allegedly slapped and spit at by her employer who seemed to “be angry at our country.” The employer fled to America when conflict broke out in Syria and left them at his mountaintop house with some of his guards, without food and pay. They fled as shooting came closer to the house.
