Eight Year Old Child Bride Dies Of Internal Injuries Due To Sexual Intercourse With Man Five Times Her Age.
An eight-year-old child bride has died in Yemen of internal bleeding sustained during her wedding night after being forced to marry a man five times her age, activists have claimed. The girl, identified only as Rawan, died in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia. Activists are now calling for the groom, who is believed to be around 40 years old, and her family to be arrested so they can face justice in the courts. The practice of marrying young girls is widespread in Yemen and has attracted the attention of international rights groups seeking to pressure the government to outlaw child marriages.
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. Tribal custom also plays a role, including the belief that a young bride can be shaped into an obedient wife, bear more children and be kept away from temptation. How sad, #childnotbride.
The Olu Of Warri.
Trouble started, last Wednesday, when the monarch allegedly read out to a small crowd of Itsekiri people at his palace a message that he had renounced the title of "Ogiame", as it is associated with a water deity and other gods. He also said he was renouncing all pagan religious practices of his ancestors till date and submitted Warri Kingdom and its people to Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, as a born again Christian. As soon as the news spread to Iteskiri towns and villages, anger was stirred against the monarch, who made it clear that he was changing the Ogiame title to a yet to be announced title.

The policemen walk into the cell and hand the next victim a plain sheet of paper to append his signature. Thereafter they retrieve the plain sheet, and then jokingly ask him; “which water you want? Ikorodu abi Island?”. Within days of the signing, they come back to pick the person, tie a piece of cloth around his mouth and take him out of the cell, not to be seen again. The Nigerian Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), located in Ikeja Lagos, may have become the address for the extrajudicial killing of Nigerians. Our source, who was miraculously released from the command some time ago, narrated to Ekekeee his ordeal. He said he witnessed the way people were being singled out for execution night after night. A night or two before he was eventually released, after the intervention of a top elected government official in Abuja, they came near the gate of the cell and shouted the name (which we are withholding) of their next victim. On hearing his name, the man began to sob, and ran to hide in the toilet.
