Pakistan Rimsha blasphemy case dropped
A court in Pakistan has dropped a controversial blasphemy case against a Christian girl accused by her neighbour of burning pages from the Koran.
The girl, known as Rimsha and aged 14, was held in a maximum security jail in July prompting international concern.
Her arrest followed accusations by a Muslim cleric now facing a case for allegedly planting evidence.
