Pakistani authorities on Saturday released a teenage Christian girl detained over accusations of blasphemy in a case that has stoked religious tensions.
Her face concealed with a green scarf, Rimsha was ferried from Rawalpindi jail first by an armored personnel carrier and then by helicopter to an undisclosed location after a judge granted bail the day before.
The chopper’s force at one point blew away the 14-year-old’s covering. She appeared sad and scared.
