Topics: International News

An "eight-year-old" Yemeni girl had the following to say after her big day in court:

"I am happy that I am divorced now. I will be able to go back to school," Nojud Mohammed Ali said... - AFP(15 April 2008)

The divorced husband, 28-year-old Faez Ali Thameur, withstood it all like true champion of a man.

...said he married the child "with her consent and that of her parents" but that he did not object to her divorce petition.

In response to a question from Judge Mohammed al-Qadhi, he acknowledged that the "marriage was consummated, but I did not beat her."

The 28 year-old man consumated the "marriage" with an "8 year-old" girl.

Sick man, sicker culture, but at least there are those in Yemen that appear to want to change it.
