11 Year Old Child Bride Speaks Out Before Being Killed

An 11 year-old Yemeni girl has drawn the world’s attention to the issue of child brides after denouncing her arranged marriage in an impassioned video online.
In a remarkable video first posted to LiveLeak, 11-year-old Nada Al-Ahdal fiercely declared: “I am not an item for sale, I’m a human being and I would rather die than get married at this age.”
She tells the camera how she ran away to her uncle’s house after her family married her off to an older man for money.
