Philippines' Duterte apologises to Kuwait for 'harsh' words

Philippines' Duterte apologises to Kuwait for 'harsh' wordsPhilippine President Rodrigo Duterte apologised to Kuwait on Sunday for his “harsh” words at the height of a months-long diplomatic row over the treatment of domestic workers. The spat began in February when a murdered Filipina maid was found in her employer’s freezer in the Gulf state, prompting Duterte to lash out at the “inhuman” treatment of migrant workers and ban workers from travelling to Kuwait. Authorities in Manila say around 262,000 Filipinos worked in Kuwait before February, with many employed as household maids.
