Ex-sex slave hails death verdict for culprit


A teenage Afghan girl has praised the death sentence handed to the Egyptian who imprisoned and sexually exploited her for the last four years, Al-Madinah daily reported on Thursday. Madinah police rescued the 14-year-old girl, known as Raziah, from her kidnappers earlier this year. A Madinah court sentenced Muhammad Al-Junaidi and his sister Jamalat to death by beheading, a decision endorsed by a committee of judges on Wednesday. His wives were also jailed for helping him. First wife Fatimah was sentenced to 10 years in jail, while second and third wives Merfat and Zainab were each imprisoned for one year and 500 lashes.
