A wave of indignation and shock has washed across Morocco after the story of a 17-year-old girl who was kidnapped, raped and tortured for three months came to light.

The girl, Khadija Okkarou, was held only a few kilometers from Casablanca. Ten or twelve men left obscene tattoos over her entire body in addition to signs of torture and cigarette burns.

Some 15,000 Moroccans have signed a petition urging authorities to provide urgent medical and psychological care to her. A drawing that portrays a nude tattooed girl with her face covered with ‘SOS’ has gone viral as has the hashtag that translates as ”We Are All Khadija”.

Tattoo artists have offered to get rid of the tattoos. The victim came forward with the story in recent days and went on television to talk about the case after reporting it to the police. ”I will never forgive them. They have destroyed me,” she said as the video showed a Nazi symbol, pornographic drawings and insults tattooed on her skin. ”I tried to escape many times but they always managed to capture me. I was not allowed to eat or drink or wash myself,” she said.

She added that ”my father begged them to release me in exchange for silence (about what they had done, Ed.). This was how I managed to go home. I was the one to report everything to the police. I want justice.” No official statements have been made on the investigation but a dozen suspects have reportedly been interrogated and the first hearing may be held on September 6, according to unconfirmed leaks to newspapers.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
