Last week, we reported on the shocking revelation that Eman al-Obeidy, the Libyan woman who claims she was gang raped by Gadhafi's security forces, was deported back to Libya after escaping to Qatar. The international community expressed frustration and worry that the woman may be vulnerable back in her homeland. But now, al-Obeidy is safe once again. CNN has more:
On Sunday, a high-level U.S. State Department source told CNN that al-Obeidy was on her way to Malta with her father, and would head to a processing center in Europe before leaving for a final destination. It may take weeks before she gets to that destination.
