School headmistress, who noticed the girl had fallen ill, informed officials

A Saudi school girl aged around 10 years was forced by her father to marry and the case was disclosed by the school headmistress who noticed the girl had fallen ill.

The head of the school in the southern province of Jazan said she had sent a letter to the police telling them about the forced marriage of the girl.

“The school head said in her letter that the girl was not well and that she told her she had been forced by her father to marry,” Sabq daily said.

It quoted police spokesman Colonel Awad Al Qahtani as saying the girl’s father told them that the girl is little older than 10 years as she started to go to school late. The paper gave no other details.

Why in the world is this ten year old woman still in school? She should be at home, barefoot and waiting to get pregnant.< /sarcasm jihad!>

I wonder why she's not well. Soreness from forced intercourse or morning sickness?

She’s sick to death of what is going to happen to her. Might survive the first night. Maybe not.

Both the father and the “groom” should be castrated and watch their family jewels tossed to feral dogs.
