BBC NEWS | South Asia | Rape victim anger at police guard

i blogged on this courageous woman in march, this article shows she is being detained in the country by the government.

the perpetrators will be released on monday (held for 90 days) because the 'high court' ruled there are 'no grounds' to detain them.

please pray and bring notice to this incredible woman and her struggle to draw the world's attention to the brutal treatment of women in pakistan. she was originally raped by 12 men who were ordered to rape her as punishment for her brother's supposed crime.
