Imam Held In Pakistan Blasphemy Case (PLANTED Burned Koran On Arrested Girl)

By

Pakistani police have arrested an imam accused of planting burnt pages of the Koran in the bag of a Christian girl accused of blasphemy, officials say.

The girl was detained two weeks ago after after an angry mob demanded she be punished for the alleged crime.

However, a witness has testified that imam Khalid Chishti put the pages in the bag himself, local media say.

The case of the girl, named as Rimsha, who is said to be about 14, has sparked international condemnation.
