Over at What We’re Doing, we’ve just heard from a male philosopher who’s checking on gender balance before accepting invitations.  I like the particular way he’s phrasing it as well.


Rape victim deported to Libya

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jender @ 5:58 am

A U.N. official says a Libyan woman who claims she was gang-raped by Moammar Gadhafi’s troops has been deported from Qatar, where she sought refuge.

Sybella Wilkes, spokeswoman for the United Nations’ refugee organization, says Iman al-Obeidi is now in Benghazi.

Wilkes said Thursday that al-Obeidi was a recognized refugee and that there wasn’t any “good reason” why she was deported from Doha, where she sought refuge last month.

Al-Obeidi made headlines in March when she rushed distraught into Tripoli’s Rixos Hotel, seeking to speak to foreign reporters.
