"I salute you warmly for your valiant courage," wrote one blogger, Al Yamama.
"You did the best thing because there was an urgent need for revenge and your revenge is the best."

Millions of migrants, mainly from Africa and Asian countries such as the Philippines, India, Sri Lanka and Nepal, work in Saudi Arabia as domestic help. According to a survey cited by Gulf News, 54.3 per cent of those working as maids in the Kingdom wish to marry the husband of the family they work for.
