A young Christian girl accused burning pages of the Islam's holy book has been freed from a jail near the capital and taken by helicopter to a secret location in a dramatic operation.
The release of Rimsha Masih comes a day after a judge granted her bail.
Mushtaq Awan said Masih left the prison in Rawalpindi, a garrison city near Islamabad, this afternoon.
She has been held for a little over three weeks after neighbours accused her of violating the country's strict blasphemy law.
She was taken from the prison in an armoured vehicle and whisked to a waiting helicopter while covered with a sheet to protect her identity.
Her lawyers say they will now push to have the case against her thrown out entirely.
There are worries the child, reported to be between 11 and 16, could be in danger if she remains in her homeland.

They should charge the muslim cleric who framed her with attempted murder.
That's a real AR, folks despite the color. Muslims will threaten a helpless girl, but keep their distance from an armed and dangerous woman.
It wouldn’t matter to some whether she was set up or not. She wouldn’t last two weeks if she were to return home. It’d be best for her to skip out of the country forever.
I am so relieved to hear she is out of prison and I hope and pray this will be the end of this nightmare for her.
