damn it! How stupid are u people? Let a child be a child! As i can see it, the only thing that can solve this problem is to educate their people. Formulate a law for THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN. So to stop this stupidity =(

There are MORE slaves in the world today than in any time in history. I wish I could say this just happens in one country, but little girls are sold to worse than this all over the world. Rich men travel the world having sexual relations with little girls. Children are stolen, tricked, or sold into slavery. This story is horrible, but not unique. Just the other day a girl was raped by a man of a different religion, then the men of the same religion said she should be stoned for not being married to the man who did this to her. The world is a dark place. It needs light. Stop judging, it takes too much time. Instead do something! Anything! Go, or give. World vision is a very trusted organization, I know they have a place to give to get girls out of sexual slavery. Please, take that frustration, that anger and turn it to something good, something to save other children from the nightmares.

i work here in saudi arabia and this is really true, not only for yemen. since a lot of yemeni people are muslims, they and mostmuslims believe that 18 (although legal age) is the best marrying age. i have encountered bride-to-be's at the age of 16 and 17. me and my doctor whom i am working for were arguing on this. I am still at school at that age. that's why, many saudi people here marry at a very young age. i personally respect their religion, culture and beliefs but, these people are evident of ignorance. really . they could have been in school and learning still. but, most of these women end up in homes merely caring for their children and mostly, don't know anything. sad, annoying but true.

Islam the outdated religion and has no respect for life and decency. This what we are bringing to our countries, shame on our politicians that allow this to happen. The writer below says they should hung by their neck, I say hang them by their private parts and see how they like it.

Extrodinarfily sad reflection of the wrong that is allowed in our world. What in gods name (all of the gods!!!) does a man think to take a tiny little girl as a bride???? The only words to describe this is "legalised pedophilia".

They can sever a persons hand for stealing an apple.. What about severing their sexual organs for stealing a little girls life. Oh I forget! females are only property.. and once married she "belongs" to the man, and so, is his to do with as he pleases. Where an apple belongs to some-one else..How perverse? How Two Faced? How Twisted? How Backward? How Primitive? Most of all How DISGUSTING? May any man who participates, or condones this VILE act, NEVER find peace in this or any other life..

Apparently, it was declared UN-Islamic when the government tried to raise the age of "Child Brides" to 17. This tells me, that ALL the men(and I use the term losely) who had it repealled are Paedophiles. How can ANY person say that it is un-islamic to marry an adult? What religion could possibly condone such a barbaric torture and death of such a sweet looking, innocent child. May whoever condoned this vile law, leading to this vile act, ROT IN HELL. and recieve the worst punishment their religion tells about, during and after their despicably vile lives are over. (The sooner the better too)

This is disgusting. The Middle East has become so wrought with the culture that they have become a misrepresentation of Islam. As a Muslim, I know what the truth of our religion is, and it's not this. It says clearly in the Qur'an 2:187 that husbands and wives are garments for each other: like a garment, they are meant to protect each other and preserve each other's honor. In Islam, it is recommended for us to marry those as similar as possible to us (aka no 5x age difference) and forced marriages are NOT allowed. You know why people got married so young back then? Life expectancies were so much shorter! These idiots in the Middle East think that's the way it's supposed to be, even though people are living until even into their 100s now. There is a way to progress with the religion, the point of Islam is that it's a progressive religion, but they've become stuck in the Stone Age. Those who don't know how to do it right are getting all the attention, and it reflects badly on all of us. Please understand that TRUE Islam involves progression, tolerance, and respect, not this nonsense

Small correction to article, "HRW" (Human Rights Watch) put out that report. HRW focuses on global human rights in the general sense. "HRC" is Human Rights Campaign, a different org, HRC focuses more on gay/lesbian equality issues.

"In February 2009, a law was created in Yemen that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic."

Well, there you have it! We can't have a law which prevents mohammed's followers from practicing his pedophile ways.

There we go. . . us Americans being big brother again. This is none of our business. (do I think it should happen, of course not) But this has been part of their culture for hundreds if not thousands of years and to them there is nothing wrong with it, and it has nothing to do with the good old US of A. It is apart of their culture, just like this used to be part of Christian culture.

-You know what else a lot of us tend to forget - Mathew 7-1 & 2 Judge not! Yet ye be judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

and Acts 17:16-34 When Paul went to preach to other nations in this case it was Greece

DON'T MAKE IGNORANT CLAIMS OR CHARGES AGAINST OTHER RELIGIONS. If a follower of Jesus who wants to engage with people of other faiths, take Paul's cue - learn about them and show them you have a nuanced understanding. Otherwise, we probably shouldn't say much about their religion, and hold our comments to positive affirmations of our own faith.
IT IS BIBLICAL TO FIND COMMON GROUND WITH PEOPLE OF OTHER FAITHS - including Islam! Be biblical, not polemical. Much of what passes for 'Christian' criticism and fear of Islam is really, in my opinion, is cultural bigotry unjustified by a shallow reference to religion. When you are person to person, or person to group (like Paul), be Biblical and find common ground, find something to affirm (if you can't find anything to affirm in the others religion, unless they are either a Satanist, then you should just stay quiet).

Take note Americans and Christians... As tragic as this story is it did not happen in the USA so as Americans we should not even know that this happened. Second as Christians we should take a page from Paul's teachings and keep our mouths shut

The church, the parents, the in-laws, the girls other family members, the priest, the politicians, the lawmakers, the so-called religious believers should all go to jail!! ANYONE involved in making this marriage and any underage marriage should go to jail.

Marrying babies in the name of religion or culture. These people all say we should mind our own business. That we must understand that this is their way of life. BULLSH*T!!!! HYPOCRITES!!!! MEN made these laws so they can F*CK little girls. I GUARANTEE BY THE TIME THIS LITTLE GIRL IS 10 YEARS OLD AND HE'S HAD ENOUGH OF HER, HE WOULD HAVE GOT HIMSELF ANOTHER BABY WIFE!! THAT'S THE WAY THE CULTURE IS!!

Sounds like Pedifilia to me. Too bad the age of consent law could not help this beautiful little girl, hope her tragedy willl anger people enough to push for age of consent to be a universal law.

we as women dont need this kind of abuse. you dont have to be a Muslim to abuse girls or boys its in all nation trust me ive read and heard and seen. i dont agree to all this barbaric things happening to little girls. i cant get it out of my head..40 year old my god am sure he had 20 year daughter of his own. the minds of men need to change or there should be behind bars. i would kill anyone touch my nieces or any other girls.

It really doesnt matter what the "culture" says. What is wrong is wrong. Anyone defending this to be what their "culture" finds okay, is uneducated and is living life with blinders on. If this was one of your children, how would you feel?? It really is not okay. I've learned alot about religions, in fact while in college i requested a class on learning about different religions and cultures and beliefs plus I'm a psych minor so please spare me. Very sad how this was allowed. She was 8 years old and knows nothing about sex. As a 40 year old man, he should've had brains. Why not find a 30 year old woman, why an 8 year old child? Inhumane and anamalistic. This is a case of child abuse and rape. Psychology across the board will tell you this. This guy should be jailed as the parents.

Soo sad this girl had to die because of some jerk who just had to have sex with her. Who cares if they were married. What would he have done if he had a child and a 40 year old man killed her via sexual trauma? These children aren't even menstruating yet and are still developing. In the US the guy is called a pedophile and goes to jail.

People need to stop defending this as being right because it sadistic and inhumane. Just because a culture has it so called rules, doesn't mean it has to be followed. Please dont defend this as being right.

Castrate this guy and see who has sexual trauma then. Sick, sick people. This poor little girl. I guess her feeling didnt matter. Soo sad. Even worse a foced marriage on a 40 year old. Really???

This is not in the name of any religion or culture this is just complete abuse of an innocent child by her so called husband and her parents.....I cannot begin to imagine the fear and pain she must have gone through while he was raping her....This little girl along with obviously many others should be protected and kept safe.....not have to die to be safe.....There are so many couples who cannot have children then to read that a couple would allow this to happen to their child, knowing exactly what would happen to her is just completely unbelievable !!!!!!!!!! Had she survived this horrendous rape ordeal she would have had to endure the horrible bastard daily !!!!!!!!!!!!! Children are children wherever they live and they should be allowed to play and grow until they are old enough to make their own decisions....I don't agree with arranged marriages anyway, we chose who we fall in love with not to be forced....A Child only has enough emotion to understand love for their families not for a disgusting pervert !!!!
