Nepal ban on Middle East workers

Women under age of 30 will not be allowed to work in these countries amid concerns over exploitation.

    Rights groups have criticised Nepal's decision to ban women under the age of 30 from working in the Middle East.

    They say the government should bring in measures to ensure their safety.

    Nepal's leaders took the decision earlier this month following reports of violence, sexual abuse and exploitation.
