Foreign Worker Indicated for Abuse

A woman from Nepal was indicted Wednesday in Tel Aviv for abusing an elderly man she was hired to care for. The woman allegedly slapped, kicked, screamed at, punched and pushed the 84-year-old Holocaust survivor with no provocation.

Many foreign workers from southeast Asia are employed in Israel as private caretakers for the elderly.
