Brickbat: Don't Say That


Stokkete /

Sudanese security forces shut down a press conference planned by the attorney of a teen who was sentenced to death for killing a man she was forced to marry. Noura Hussein says the man raped her as his relatives held her down. Human rights activists say shutting down the press conference was just the latest move by the government to keep media from reporting on the case, which has drawn attention to the problem of forced marriage in the country.
