Rape Culture:Libyan woman is brutally silenced after accusing Gaddafi’s forces of rape(Guardian UK)

Libyan woman is brutally silenced after accusing Gaddafi’s forces of rape(Guardian UK)

Iman al-Obeidi was quickly manhandled and arrested by security officials – an extraordinary spectacle for the journalists staying in the luxurious hotel-cum-media centre, hemmed in by severe restrictions on their movements and fed barely credible information.

The scene – filmed by several of those present – unfolded when Obeidi entered the Ocaliptus dining room and lifted up her abaya (dress) to show a slash and bruises on her right leg. “Look what Gaddafi’s men have done to me,” she screamed. “Look what they did, they violated my honour.”
