  1. Reports: Relatives cut fetus out of teen rape victim in Afghanistan

    When relatives learned that a 14-year-old was carrying her rapist's child, AFP says they cut the 5-month-old fetus out of the Afghan girl's womb and then used "a large needle of the sort used to seal flour sacks" to close the wound.

    "The girl stayed at home for three or four days in her condition until her father took her to hospital," Dr. Ghulam Mohammad Nader tells BBC News. "He said a dog had bitten her so that people in the area wouldn't know what had really happened."

    The British broadcaster says the girl is in critical condition at a hospital in central Afghanistan.
