MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Embassy in Saudi Arabia has warned the 1 million-strong Filipino community there against “sensationalizing” and reporting cases of abused overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) on social media.

All requests for assistance should be coursed directly to the embassy so they can immediately assist the distressed OFW, it added.
