Pakistan’s Asia Bibi freed from jail: lawyer

Christian woman who had blasphemy conviction overturned ‘on a plane’, lawyer says

Islamabad: Pakistani Christian woman Asia Bibi who spent eight years on death row for blasphemy has been freed from jail, her lawyer said Thursday.

“I have been told that she is on a plane but nobody knows where she will land,” lawyer Saif-Ul-Malook said in a message sent to AFP.

Pakistan’s highest court ordered Bibi’s release last week after overturning her conviction, triggering protests in the Muslim nation.
