Child Marriage: An 8 Year Old Bride Dies Following Internal Injuries

He who has ears, let him hear now.  When I saw this, what came to mind was #childbride.

An 8-year-old girl identified only as “Rawan,” died following internal injuries she sustained on her wedding night. The young girl was forced into married to a groom who is reportedly about 40 years old.

Rawan died in Hardh, an area which borders Saudi Arabia, after internal bleeding could not be controlled.

International rights activists and bloggers are calling for this groom and child’s family to be arrested following this horrible incident, citing that arrests and other consequences could help to make the practice obsolete.

Yemen's gripping poverty plays a role in hindering efforts to stamp out the practice, as poor families find themselves unable to say no to 'bride-prices' that can be hundreds of dollars for their daughters.

More than a quarter of Yemen's females marry before age 15, according to a report in 2010 by the Social Affairs Ministry.

  4. I think wanting to have sex with a baby is a form of sexual perversion. These men are sick upstairs. Poverty stricken parents + sick pedophiles = Child marriage and untimely death.

  7. I am so upset reading this!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I dunno how Muslims would sit back n condone this. Paedophiles amongst them r interpreting the Quran to suit them while d rest of them r totally quiet. The parents of the late child bride left to me are jus sperm n egg donors cos dey hav failed woefully in dat dept. Yerima am sure ur ears r open. U n ur croonies can cotinue defiling lil girls, jus note that ur children till d 20th generation. Will b rewarded in d same way. 4giv my typos #boiling with rage#
