The U.S. forces the departure of a Kuwaiti diplomat from his post at the embassy in Washington, D.C. He was accused of treating his domestic servants in the U.S. like slaves. This is believed to be the first time the government has taken such strong action against a diplomat accused of abuse against domestic staff.

A Tanzanian diplomat is also being investigated for mistreating domestic staff.
