.The 16-year-old girl, named as Amina Filali, ate rat poison after a Tangier court which was supposed to be punishing her 26-year-old attacker decided that they should instead be wed.
This is because Moroccan laws exempt a rapist from punishment if he agrees to marry his victim.
Traumatised by the rape and the forced marriage, Moroccan newspaper al-Massae said she committed suicide at her husband's house.
Last year Afghan 21-year-old Gulnaz was jailed for 'adultery by force' after she was brutally raped by her husband's cousin.
Her attacker was jailed for seven years for the crime that left her pregnant.
A global outrage saw the President of Afghanistan personally pardoning her and releasing her from Kabul's Badam Bagh jail, with no pre-conditions.
Just to clarify the bible on Deut 22:28-29,
It states that the man is required to pay compensation (50 silver Shekels!) for the victim and MAY marry her!...
(i.e. he has the option to ask for her hand in marriage should he chose to set things right - to some extent).
Certainly different to suggesting that the woman is FORCED in any way to marry the man such as in the Amina Filali case.
