Asia Bibi, a Catholic woman acquitted of blasphemy this week in Pakistan, will leave the country soon, her family said, as hardline Islamists intensified protests over her release. The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday overturned her 2010 death sentence, saying prosecutors failed to prove she violated the country’s blasphemy law. Bibi’s brother, James Masih, said she is being held at an undisclosed location for security reasons. “She has no other option and she’ll leave the country soon,” he said. France and Spain have offered her asylum.
