Guardian:


Four people have been arrested in Bangladesh after the death of a 14-year-old girl who was given 100 lashes on the orders of a village cleric.

A woman complained to the cleric after spotting the girl talking with her husband. He was also given a 100 lashes, but he survived. (Wonder what he'll get the wife for their next anniversary?) Some reports say that the girl was raped by the man—and was beaten to death for her troubles.
