40 Year-Old Man Marries 8 Year-Old Child, She Dies from Internal Bleeding on wedding Night

Date:

8 year-old child who got married to a 40 year old man, is reported to have died on her wedding night from internal bleeding which was caused by intercourse.

a social activist and two local residents said, in a case that has caused an outcry in the media and revived debate about child brides.

“On the wedding night and after intercourse, she suffered from bleeding and uterine rupture which caused her death,” Othman told Reuters. “They took her to a clinic but the medics couldn’t save her life.”

Othman said authorities had not taken any action against the girl’s family or her husband.

A security official in the provincial town of Haradh denied any such incident had taken place. He did not want to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the press.

But two Meedi residents contacted by Reuters confirmed the incident and said tribal chiefs had tried to cover up the incident when the news broke, warning a local journalist against covering the story.
