Asia Bibi released from jail, sitting on an airplane

Lawyer says Asia Bibi is on plane after release from prison but ‘nobody knows where she will land’.



Asia Bibi reportedly walked free from the Mutlan prison where she has been held for the best part of a decade after authorities received documents pertaining to her release, her legal representatives told Agence France-Presse.

“I have been told that she is on a plane but nobody knows where she will land,” her lawyer Saif-Ul-Malook said in a message sent to the press agency.
