Yemeni child bride, eight, 'dies on wedding night'

Yemen locals claim a girl has died of internal bleeding after marrying a man five times her age, but officials deny the allegations. An eight-year-old Yemeni girl has died of internal bleeding on her wedding night, after marrying a man five times her age, a social activist and two local residents said, in a case that has caused an outcry in the media and revived debate about child brides. Arwa Othman, head of Yemen&;s House of Folk-lore and a leading rights campaigner, said the girl, identified only as Rawan, was married to a 40- year-old late last week in the town of Meedi in Hajjah province, northwestern Yemen.
