Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi: Family 'living in fear'

The BBC's Shaimaa Khalil has been speaking to the family of Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi about their lives in hiding, after she was given a death sentence for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

She has always denied the charges, and her lawyers have submitted an appeal to the Supreme Court.

But blasphemy is so sensitive in Pakistan that many think her case will never be heard.

''We get death threats. We live in hiding,'' said her husband Ashiq Massih. "It's not a normal life to be constantly living in fear."
