Libyan Woman Who Said She Was Raped Is Now Free
Iman al-Obeidi claimed last week she had been raped when she burst into a hotel housing journalists. Now, she has communicated with the media and seems to be safe.
On Sunday she told a Libyan dissident network based in Qatar that she was examined by a doctor to prove the rape charge. She told CNN she was detained and beaten when she tried to reach reporters a second time.
A woman the government said was al-Obeidi’s lawyer told The Associated Press Monday that her client was refusing to speak to reporters because her case was under investigation.Click here for reuse options!
