Authorities in Kuwait have announced they will recruit domestic workers from Ethiopia to cover for a "deficit" - after the Philippines banned its citizens from working in the Gulf nation.


Gen Talal Al-Maarifi, head of the Residency Affairs, said the country aims to open the door to the recruitment of Ethiopian workers to fill the deficit of domestic servants and reduce prices.

The Philippines banned their citizens taking up the roles in the country following the murder of 29-year-old Joanna Demafelis, who went missing in September 2016.

Her body was found in a freezer earlier this year, bearing signs of torture.

Her employers, a Lebanese man and Syrian woman, were sentenced to death this week.
