The Christian mother-of-five who has spent three years on death row has suffered
an attempted strangulation attack by a prison guard.
According to news reports, the bounty on Asia Bibi’s head, which has reached
$8000 (£5160) has prompted a spate of attempts on her life, meaning she now has to
cook her own meals in prison over fears of poisoning.
The prison guard accused of the alleged attack has been suspended from his post,
according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.
The British Pakistani Christian Association has urged Christians not to forget
Asia Bibi as she waits for a repeal of the death sentence.
