Sudanese teen bride kills husband during rape

Source Twitter  TheRealOlaDiab

19-year-old, Noura Hussein Hammad was handed a death sentence by a Sudanese court for killing the man her father forced her to marry, the rights group said in a statement.

Hussein said that she refused to have sex with her husband after the ceremony, but on 6th day, he raped her as three of his male relatives.

The husband returned with relatives who held Hussein down while he raped her, the lawyer said. He added that Hussein was abandoned not only by the law, but also by her family. A group of Sudanese and worldwide activists have been visiting Hussein in prison, translating letters of support from across the globe and working with her lawyers to appeal the case. In recent years, women and children's rights activists have increasingly campaigned against forced marriages of girls and marriage of underage girls, a widespread phenomenon in Sudan, where the law allows children over the age of 10 to marry.

"All Sudanese people, activists and women's organisations must unite to fight for justice for Noura", tweeted political activist Amani Ahmed.

Amnesty International slammed the sentence.

"Noura's lawyers say they plan to appeal against the decision, but we also need strong worldwide support from organisations such as the African Union, the United Nations and the European Union to support her".

Ms Hussein was forced into marriage at 16.

Now she awaits the death penalty.

Sudan is run by longtime autocrat President Omar al-Bashir, who the International Criminal Court has accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur during fighting since 2003. Thousands of people have signed petitions in support of Hussein.

Japanese PM stumbles over dessert served in shoe
The person responsible for the unusual creation is Segev Moshe, a celebrity chef who serves as a personal cook to the Mr. and Ms. One Israeli diplomat who served in Japan was equally livid: "There is nothing more despicable in Japanese culture than a shoe".


Cases like Hussein's don't come to light often in Sudan, Salah said, because most young women who experience sexual abuse in marriage "don't raise their voices or say anything because of the social pressure or the social stigma". But Hussein's case was different. In 2015, Tunisia became the only Arab country to take a formal stance against marital violence and rape. "She stood for her rights". The family of the victim chooses the punishment for the murderer, demanding either pardon, or monetary compensation, or the death penalty.
