Pakistan Supreme Court Suspends Asia Bibi Death Sentence

Pakistan’s supreme court has suspended the death sentence passed on Asia Bibi when she was found guilty of blasphemy in 2010. The court has granted her leave to appeal and has ordered an examination of all records pertaining to the incident that led to the charge of blasphemy, according to her lawyer.

Asia Bibi’s husband fears locals will beat her to death even if she is acquitted. He claims clerics have put a bounty on her head.
