12-year-old Yemeni girl Fawziya dies after childbirth

This is bad and pretty common in some places especially nations such as Yemen. Hope some himan rights groups will focus on these type of bad icruel cases

" 12-year-old Yemeni girl, who was forced into marriage, died during a painful childbirth that also killed her baby, a children's rights group said Monday.

 

The Yemeni parliament tried in February to pass a law, setting the minimum marriage age at 17. But the measure has not reached the president because many parliamentarians argued it violates sharia, or Islamic law, which does not stipulate a minimum age

"

At least the govt is trying to pass a law but since Yemen it is an islamic state, that triumpth over all, i mean Sharia Law triumps over all therefore
God bless her sou
