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?
I’m amazed this even makes the news at all.
Unfortunately, an untold story is the constant flow of girls from Western countries back home where they are “honor killed.” Outside of US law, and the Western consciousness, there are girls that are shipped home and murdered because they shamed their family.
These are the type, to use the term loosely, people that Obama, his worshipers, his voters, and the Democrat Party support
In my opinion, if they are girls they are. The evidence and facts speak for themselves.
We might be shocked to learn that child “marriage” also happens in large Muslim enclaves in Western countries and even the US. Ditto for Female Genital Mutilation.
Oh, dear God.
Give the U.S. 20 years and the Left will have succeeded in lowering the age of consent down to similar levels. It will be considered a human rights issue and if you disagree with adults marrying children you will be branded a bigot.
It’s a religion of peace! Or so we were told.
But we’re a multicultural society....who are we to judge?
‘round these parts that “groom” wouldn’t last a month on the street before suffering an “accident.”
Obama pointedly met with people like this when he was in St. Petersburg. Some Russian "Youth Human Rights" group (I can't remember the exact name) which advocates for the sexual "rights" of LGBT minor children.
The sole means of social organization is Islam itself, not a rule of law, democratic process, free market etc. Islam does not practice inclusiveness, a new buzz word in America. Islam is the sole means of organizing and running a society and you have rules and positions such as a Mufti (religious based judge), Madras (religious based school), Imam (cleric - but also the primary window to the outside world)... Islam commands strict adherence with prayers, diet, dress, etc. The difference between Western self proclaimed Christians and Muslims is the most Christians simply culturally identify themselves as such, while Muslims really live their religion. Most secular Western Christians really can't even understand nor accept that they are in the midst of a religious war, may that be in Bosnia, Sudan, Israel, the terrorist attacks in the US (WTC I, II, Ft Hood, attacks on recruiting stations..., Abu Saaef in the Philippines, Syria, Egypt, Libya, USS Cole, Kohbar Towers, Lebanon... To the average Westerner, the idea of this being a conflict between two paradigms is near incomprehensible although the real antagonists such as Iran, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah, AQ in the past and a plethora of other groups make no secret of this. It is comical to see how in the West we try to redefine things to make them appear as something other than what they are, acts of workplace violence, misunderstandings, etc.
Listen up, people. If a society needs a LAW to explain that it really isn't appropriate for an eight year old to be raped by a man of ANY age ... then that society doesn't really need a law .... what it needs is to be VAPORIZED !!! The sooner the better.
“I see their tactics as fourfold:
1.The elimination of basic sexual ethics. This has been long accomplished.
2.The creation of autonomous sexual rights for children (which you mentioned). This has been started.
3.The normalization of homosexuality. This has been recently accomplished.
4.The lowering of the age of consent”
for a second there, I thought you were talking about hollywood
