A safe and hidden, the child has made public his story through a video that the Institute of Media Research Middle East (MEMRI) has posted on Youtube. His testimony, told with surprising fortitude in a girl so young, has rocked two and half million Internet users. In the images, Nada Al-Ahdal complaint not only their situation but that of many other children whose childhood vanishes in the time when her family decides they should get married. “What has become of childhood innocence? How have children done wrong and why they want to marry you? “asks the child.

It’s amazing how such a little girl reflects on death: “I have managed to solve my problem, but many innocent children can not solve their own and may die, suicide or do the first thing that comes to mind.’s Only children? do they know? Have not had time to study or anything. “Nada Al-Ahdal has clearly never wants to see her family, but still throws a strong message to their parents from a distance:” Go ahead. Casadme and kill me, as simple as that. “

The abused with chains, get drunk … You really happy would you marry? “Asks the girl to her parents from a distance. Finally, the small Yemeni family accuses the treatment have given: “You ruined my dreams.”
More than half of girls

More than half of Yemeni girls are married before they turn 18, many times with much older men with other women, according to a study by the University of Sanaa.

“Child marriages violate the rights of children in the most deplorable. Child marriage denies girls their childhood, deprives them of an education and robs them of their innocence,” said UNICEF Executive Director Ann M. Veneman.

The Yemeni parliament tried to pass a law in 2008 that placed the minimum age for marriage at 17 years. But this proposal did not go ahead because many parliamentarians argued it violates sharia, or Islamic law.
