Asia Bibi has been freed from prison but remains in protective custody.



After spending eight years on death row, the Christian woman acquitted last week has been freed in the city of Multan, according to her lawyer. She was brought to an undisclosed safe place in Pakistan.

Riots and violent protests led by Islamist clerics broke out in the last days, and the government led by Prime Minister Imran Khan announced an agreement with the which included a travel ban for Asia Bibi and an option to file a review petition against the Supreme Court verdict. The government admitted the agreement with violent radicals would not help the innocent woman, but was “larger interest of the country”.
