HARDH, Yemen, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- An 8-year-old Yemeni girl died from internal injuries on the first night of her marriage to a man more than five times her age, Kuwaiti daily Al Watan reported.
The girl, identified only by the name Rawan, died in Hardh in the governorate of Hajjah in northwestern Yemen, the newspaper reported Sunday.
She died after suffering a tear to her genitals and severe bleeding, Gulf News reported.
Yemeni and Kuwaiti activists have called for police to arrest the girl's husband and family and to put an end to the practice of marrying young girls, Gulf News said.
"Her family and her groom could have waited for some time before having this marriage," wrote on blogger, who goes by the name "Sad." "It was not fair at all and the marriage should not have happened even if some tribes believe that it is a good custom."

poor child. RIP.
Eight years old? “Married” to a 50 yr old?
Islam, religion of pedophiles, pederasts, and evil, cruel people.
As the mother of four daughters I really do not understand this. Are muslims incapable of loving their children?
barbarians. at least in this country we have laws, vigorously enforced, I might add, to take care of that problem when the child is still in the womb, and stick a metal tube in her head and suck her brains out.
yup, we are much more civilized than the rest of the world.
They will just ignore our moral protestations and wait for us to die out.
Id be more than happy to do the same to him with my Louisville slugger
An 8 year old Yemeni girl has a WEDDING NIGHT??
What is this, a repeat of the Prophet’s example?
Yes, they are incapable. They hate other human beings.
Huh, good point.
Evil. RIP. Hang her “husband.”
Hey president Hussein! I got your human rights violations right here.
3000 years of civilization
But no worries
We’re regressing at a fast clip
Yes, sadly, you’re right.
And actually, while Islam emerged in the 7th century, it was actually itself a throwback to paganism and rejected Jewish and Christian morality. So who knows how far back we’re going to go?
