Iman al-Obeidi accused that She was gang-raped by 15 of Qaddafi’s men.

Posted: April 1, 2011 in News and Views

Last Saturday, a young woman lawyer named Iman al-Obeidi burst into a Tripoli hotel and pleaded with foreign journalists for help, showing bruises and crying that she had just been gang-raped by 15 of Qaddafi’s men. She screamed as she was dragged away by Libyan agents and has not been seen since.

Words cannot express the courage Iman showed in speaking out — and we can only imagine the terror she must be facing right now in the hands of Qaddafi’s infamous thugs. Her life is in danger, but we can help, if we act fast.  

Qaddafi will ignore most international outrage, but he listened to the Turkish government when they asked him to release foreign journalists. Let’s urgently raise a massive global call to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan to help save Iman — sign the petition and forward this email to everyone – it will be hand-delivered to the Turkish consulate in Benghazi, and through ads in Turkey, as soon as organizers reach 500,000 signatures.
