    These parents handed their ten year old daughter over to a man over 30 years old. (aka a pedophile!!!)

    And then they're shocked that he forced her to have sex !?!?

    Apparently this is not uncommon in Yemen, and seen as a 'way of assuring' the young daughter's future.

    This ten year old girl managed to escape, and got a divorce (even though the court made her pay the husband $200). She's one brave kid.

    This is a really sad story. Everyone needs to listen to the tape before commenting on this thread. What a sad and misinformed country this place is. :(

    I so agree. Only when you change the thinking, do you change the behavoir in any lasting and meaningful way.

    I wish more could be done in other countries to help girls. they seem to be considered disposable in so many places. then again we aren't doing so well in the us.

    btw the legal age of consent in most arabic countries for girls inside of marriage is 9. not sure how u can knowingly consent at 9.
