Child Bride in Yemin Dies From Internal Bleeding on Her Wedding Night: She was 8 years old

SANAA (Reuters) - An eight-year-old Yemeni girl died of internal bleeding on her wedding night after marrying a man five times her age, a social activist and two local residents said, in a case that has caused an outcry in the media and revived debate about child brides.

Arwa Othman, head of Yemen House of Folklore and a leading rights campaigner, said the girl, identified only as Rawan, was married to a 40-year-old man late last week in the town of Meedi in Hajjah province in northwestern Yemen.

"On the wedding night and after intercourse, she suffered from bleeding and uterine rupture which caused her death," Othman told Reuters. "They took her to a clinic but the medics couldn't save her life."

Othman said authorities had not taken any action against the girl's family or her husband.

A local security official in the provincial town of Haradh denied any such incident had taken place. He did not want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

But two Meedi residents contacted by Reuters confirmed the incident and said that local tribal chiefs had tried to cover up the incident when news first broke, warning a local journalist against covering the story.

Many poor families in Yemen marry off young daughters to save on the costs of bringing up a child and earn extra money from the dowry given to the girl.

A U.N. report released in January revealed the extent of the country's poverty, saying that 10.5 million of Yemen's 24 million people lacked sufficient food supplies, and 13 million had no access to safe water and basic sanitation.

Human Rights Watch urged Yemen's government in December 2011 to ban marriages of girls under the age of 18, warning it deprived child brides of education and harmed their health.

Quoting United Nations and government data, HRW said nearly 14 percent of Yemeni girls were married before the age of 15 and 52 percent before the age of 18. The group said many Yemeni child brides-to-be are kept from school when they reach puberty.

Discussions on the issue were shelved by political turmoil following protests against President Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2011 that led to his ouster.

ISIS in Fort Walton Beach Florida

Last weekend I was invited to Fort Walton Beach, Florida to give a presentation on Islamic terrorist events not only throughout the world, but also in the military community of Fort Walton. It has always been my policy that I will not say anything negative about anyone or any organization unless I have first hand evidence to support my claim. On 8 Jan 2016, I went to the Islamic Da'wah Center of Fort Walton Beach, 6 Hollywood Blvd SW, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548. Keep in mind the term Da'wah means to spread the ideology of Islam. In essence it is missionary work. My friends in Fort Walton and the surrounding area are surrounded by ISIS members/supporters who are living, working, and spreading the very same ideology as ISIS advocates in Syria and around the world.

ISIS would be proud of the Imam of the Fort Walton Beach mosque. Worshippers are provided numerous booklets, manuals, brochures, DVD's and 500 plus page books promoting an Islamic caliphate worldwide and und…

Portrait of an American Coward (Chief Nick Willard)

Manchester NH Police Chief Nick Willard  AKA Chief Chicken Little


Patriotic Readers:  Review this article and then contact Chief Willard and respectfully ask him to stop protecting Islamic terrorist supporters at the ISNH (Islamic Society of NH) but to protect innocent men, women, and children who love America and support the U.S. Constitution.  If he does not want to protect the innocent children of Manchester, then call for his firing.


On 30 June 2017, I conducted firsthand research at the ISNH mosque.  I had two witnesses.  One went inside the mosque with me, and the other remained outside the mosque.  The intent was to determine if this mosque was advocating hate toward non Muslims, Americans, Jews, and Muslims who did not want to follow the followings of a dangerous mosque leadership.  The article below by Jim Simpson summarizes my results.


The research at the mosque was simply to determine if the worshippers and mosque leadership were advocating the dangerous ideology of Islam …

Help With Counterterrorism Research

Conducting counterterrorism research in America is expensive, time consuming and yes a CT professional exposing Islamic terrorist issues faces the hate and unethical scrutiny of the main stream media.  Thus far I have conducted research in over 290 mosques and the results have been provided to the public, media, and law enforcement.  Please Donate.  Scroll a page down to DONATE Link on right side. I cant do it without you, Respectfully, Dave G.  (All children are innocent and these angels are who Islamic terrorists target)
