Afghan girl tortured for refusing prostitution

Afghan girl tortured by in-laws for refusing prostitution

From Yahoo! News – Reuters

Running away from an abusive husband or a forced marriage are considered “moral crimes,” for which women are currently imprisoned in Afghanistan.

Some rape victims have also been imprisoned, because sex outside marriage, even when the woman is forced, is considered adultery, another “moral crime.”
