A 12-year-old Yemeni girl bled for three days after intercourse and then died from the internal bleeding. She was married to an older man.
The death of this little girl is the latest in a series of cases in Yemen because of underage marriages. The little girl was identified as Elham Mahdi.
"Elham Mahdi was married on March 29th and died three days later," said Amal Basha, the chairwoman of the Sisters Arab Forum for Human Rights.
