Girl Would Rather Die Than Be Sold Off Into Marriage

Nada al-Ahdal, 11, has decided she would rather die than be forced into a marriage against her will. When she was a toddler, her uncle offered to adopt her, and her parents agreed. About a month ago, her parents said they wanted to see her, and once they got her they kept her. She soon discovered why - when she said she wanted to go home to her uncle, they said she had already been sold off into marriage and the wedding was in the works. And this eloquent, tragic, impassioned, fiery video was born.
