A 13-year-old says she got raped by four men, her country wants her to die: That's the saga of Kainat Soomro, who's been fighting for justice in Pakistan for four years.
Since Soomro's alleged rape, she and her relatives have lived in fear that a Pakistani tribunal will order her parents to carry out an honor killing on the grounds that being raped brings shame to the family - something that happens frequently in Pakistani rape cases. Her parents refused to accept that fate. They hired an attorney, made court appeals, and appeared on TV in an effort to bring her alleged rapists to light.
They've suffered in the process: The family had to move, Soomro's father and brother were beaten by the alleged rapists, and her older brother, Sabir, went missing for three months and was later found murdered.
Soomro's struggle inspired a documentary, "Outlawed in Pakistan," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month and will air on PBS' "Frontline" this spring.
