Girl flogged to death for "affair" at fourteen

A really sad post today on a fourteen-year-old girl who was flogged to death for having an "affair" - although the facts seem to me more than a little shaky. Local reports also claim that she was raped but that is not confirmed.
Flogging was outlawed in Bangladesh last year, but clearly, the practise goes on, and targets more women than men.

sad story

This is a very sad story and an injustice to the girl. Where is the boy, he has been set free. This is not fair. Thank you for sharing this on world pulse.
