What do they mean "Un-Islamic"?! This shows me that "Islamic" men, are so emotionally, educationally, sexually and ultimately, so religiously and spiritually immature that they only feel powerful over little girls. This is an embarassing tragedy and Allah is an embarassing god if this is what he has taught these weakling males.

I'm sickened by this article and its contents. What happened to this eight year old girl is unacceptable. What this man did to this helpless child is nothing short of evil. There are no excuses for this barbaric and immoral treatment of a child. Every adult who had anything to do with the rape and resulting death of this young girl should be held accountable and punished to the fullest extent of the law. This is pedophilia plain and simple. It's a perversion. It's not normal or natural. May that poor little soul rest in peace and may she finally experience true love and true joy that painfully evaded her in her short lifetime.

These practices have come down through millennium and are barbaric by our modern western standards. Only by openly shaming these people we can make changes. It is almost always our sisters who suffer in silence.

Oh but don't forget you guys...Islam is a "peaceful" religion. I threw up in my mouth a little just typing that.

It's interesting to see everyone so upset on the comments, but in reality, you will go back to your everyday life and soon forget about this story. This is just one story. But in reality SO many things go on around the world that is similar to this. What about sex trafficking? Girls and boys much younger than this are sold into sex slavery every year. MILLIONS of people are sold into slavery. This is tragic, yes, but these things occur constantly all over the world and most Americans, Europeans, etc. are too caught up in the first world to try to change these situations. That is the real disgrace.

for all the pro-Islam propaganda being spread by the American media and our President, things like this happen that show the reality of how people in the Muslim world think. They are little more than animals- no thought for who they hurt, how much suffering they cause, and no sense of right and wrong. This is Islam at its core.

Look at you all sitting back in your comfortable little homes chomping your supermarket-bought food acting all condescending and "concerned" about the terribly misguided culture of some brown country that practices some "savage" religion, applying your first-world values that you think everyone on earth should adhere to just because you do and as if violence never occurs in your part of the world. look at all the men acting so damn concerned for women when I'm pretty damn sure they couldn't give a fuck about the ones in their own backyard who are trafficked, prostituted and objectified. look at you all praising your respective countries as if child abuse isn't rampant there too (sorry to burst your bubble, but it is). what about all the children lost to druggie parents in your ghettos (i'm looking at you, america), the ones it was too late to save because there wasn't enough funding to child services because stray dogs need more help. look at you all judging and spitting at an entire people just because you have the luxury of living within a western oligarchy that was built up from the genocide and exploitation of others and now that it's so rich and "enlightened" you can sit back and cry about that poor little girl which I guarantee you wouldn't care so much about if it were your oh-so-noble army that killed her.

Hi Laura...Thanks for your response, and a very wise one at that. I don't think there's anything wrong with sending money to aid, or with judging cultures per se, cultures and customs are all pretty backward - but that standard is always enabled by us who think we've surpassed it (watch underground porn and tell me how "Evolved" we are). What got to me is the hypocrisy and the "holier-than-thou" attitude of most of the commentators. Yes of course children should be children. I'm certainly not CONDONING this act, but the shock seems to be so....naive and intensely ignorant of the world around us, not to mention the tragedies that happen within our own lands. Abuse is abuse. I just hate the idea that some think abuse at the hands of we in the west is somehow not as bad or as evil or as violent as "their" abuse. there's this "them and us" attitude that further alienates "them". If this little girl were to escape to america, she'd probably find herself the victim of racism or bigotry all to do with how she looks or the religion she happened to have been born into.If you think about it, the tribal villages she belonged to are just that, tribal villages, they know nothing of the outsidfe world. they have never been empowered. they've barely got enough food, let alone the funds for a proper education (or any at all), they learn through stories and what has been past down. this is a learned morality. just as americans don't feel bad about some of the shitty things they do (their gun culture is "normal" "cool" and glorified on film and television, it's not a controlled violence either, last I checked america has the highest level of incarceration in the world). Anyway, thanks for responding civilly and without hate, really appreciate it.

You are correct in that our country is twisted in some ways. You are correct in that the priorities of our government are screwed. But we the people are not really in control. If it were up to MOST of us, we, as a country, would be taking care of our own FIRST and NOT sending out $$ that we don't really even have to other countries to help their people. All child abuse (including neglect) is a tragedy. We think children should have the opportunity to BE children, to laugh and to play and have fun and have no worries, before they have to act like adults for the rest of their lives. 8 years old, that's hardly more than a baby. I doubt that ANY little girl of 8 years old really finds in her heart that marrying and having sex with a 40 year old man is appealing. How scary that must be! She hasn't even hit puberty yet-- what is the purpose of a 40 year old man marrying and having sex with a child that young other than self serving. I try hard not to judge culture. We are all different. But a child dying at the hands of a 40 year old man due to sexual trauma, that is not culture, that is abuse. Incidentally, I am not ashamed to mention my name here. I am not anonymous.

Um, does this scenario remind you of someone? A 52 year old man that married a 6 yr old girl and slept with her when she turned 9? Absolutely no difference. People say, well that was a custom in those days. And I say, they also used to bury their baby girls alive in those days. It still doesn't make it morally right. And someone with morals does not marry a baby. A child's body is still a CHILD, just like this poor little girl, and the many countless other baby girls that have died or have been mutilated in this fashion that no one knows about. So when someone wants to quote chapter and verse, start thinking about whom you serve and emulate. For a man to have intercourse he must be excited by the female. What is it about a 9 year old girl that turns on a 52 year old man so that he can have sex with her? It was wrong back 1300 years ago, and it's wrong now.

There is really something wrong with the men in that country. How could they do such thing? These men are even worst than animal and shouldn't live in this world.

Most children (ages 3-11) do not know much about sexual relations (and if they do, they were probably molested/raped) or even how to be a spouse to an old man and even pre-teen/teenagers (12-19) are usually misinformed about sexual matters and are not mentally capable of being a mature spouse. From reading the previous comments, especially this culture, girls and women are kept ignorant. This is so sad, disgusting and inhumane.

So these pedophiles use the excuse of "religion"...
