Still unclear if she will be released

|

A Pakistani judge has granted bail to a Christian girl accused of blasphemy.

Rimsha Masih was arrested last month in Islamabad after angry neighbors accused her of burning pages from the Quran.  

During a hearing on Friday, a Judge Judge Mohammad Azam Khan ordered Masih's release after hearing arguments from lawyers on both sides.  She has been in police custody for three weeks.  Khan set bail at roughly $10,500.  It was unclear when she would be released.
