i normally would NEVER publish a picture

or name a name of a rape victim. in this case, i am going to. it may save her life (but chances are it will not. he's an evil maniac)

the WORLD knows her face AND her name. the WORLD knows her scars inside and out.

Woman bursts into hotel to tell of rapes

By David D. Kirkpatrick
TRIPOLI, Libya — A Libyan woman burst into the hotel housing the foreign press in Tripoli yesterday morning in an attempt to tell journalists that she had been raped and beaten by members of Moammar Khadafy’s militia. After struggling for nearly an hour to resist removal by security forces, she was dragged away from the hotel screaming.  “They say that we are all Libyans, and we are one people,’’ said the woman, who gave her name as Eman al-Obeidy, barging in during breakfast at the hotel dining room. “But look at what the Khadafy men did to me.’’ She displayed a broad bruise on her face, a large scar on her upper thigh, several narrow and deep scratch marks lower on her leg, and marks that seemed to come from binding her hands and feet............... 

this is NOT easy to watch, but please watch it. she is a hero.

Libyan woman claims she was raped, abused by Gaddafi soldiers

In a bizarre event in the ongoing crisis in Libya, a distraught and disturbed Libyan woman sought out western reporters in a Tripoli hotel to claim she had been gang-raped for two days by fifteen members of a paramilitary force loyal to Moammar Gaddafi.
However, before she could tell the whole story, Iman al-Obeidi was dragged out of the Rixos hotel by Libyan officials and hotel employees.
The whole episode was captured on video (see below).
She alleged that she had been detained at a checkpoint, tied her up, sexually abused her and then led her away to be gang-raped.
"They tied me up ... they even defecated and urinated on me," she said. "The Gaddafi militiamen violated my honor."............

Appalling. I fear for her now that she's in custody again.
