Mauritanian Group Issues Facebook Threat Against Female Activist: U.N.

A U.N. official said, the leader of a Mauritanian group has issued a threat on his Facebook page to "tear out the eyes" of a rights activist for demanding a fair trial for a man charged with turning his back on Islam. The United Nations on Friday urged the Mauritanian government to protect human rights activist Aminetou Mint El-Moctar, who is well-known in the Islamic republic for campaigning for women's rights and against human trafficking. The group called the threats a "fatwa", or religious edict.
