Afghan Girl Tortured by Husband

Afghan police rescued a 15-year-old girl from her husband’s basement, where she had been imprisoned and tortured for several months. Police say Sahar Gul had her nails and hair pulled out, and chunks of flesh cut out with pliers. The girl was married to a 30-year-old man seven months ago, when she was 14 years old. Her parents called the police after they’d been unable to contact her for several months. Police arrested Gul’s in-laws, who she says participated in her torture, but her husband had already fled.
