Another victim of the Muslim tradition of forcing young under-age girls into marriage (above). A 12-year-old Yemeni child bride has died after struggling to give birth for 3 days, a local human rights organisation has announced. Fawziya Abdullah Youssef died of severe bleeding on Friday while giving birth to a stillborn baby in the al-Zahra district hospital of Hodeida province, 140 miles west of the capital Sanaa. Child marriages are widespread in the Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest country which has a population of 23 million, where tribal and old Islamic customs dominate society. More than a quarter of the country’s females marry before the age of 15, according to the country’s Social Affairs Ministry. What a humane and triumphant piece of social engineering in the name of the Religion of Peace. And this is the kind of medieval bullshit that those who support the introduction of Sharia Law in the UK would have foisted upon the children of Britain ?
