Asia Bibi blasphemy case

Do I believe my life is threatened: "Of course" - Asia Bibi's lawyer

Asia Bibi's lawyer helped defeat her blasphemy charge, but the threats keep coming.
Last week we reported that Asia BIbi, the Christian woman who spent eight years on death row in Pakistan for blasphemy, had finally been flown to Canada where she's been given asylum. But her case is far from unique with hundreds charged since the law was tightened in the 1980s. Her lawyer, Saif Al Malook, has now taken on another such case - of a married couple accused of blasphemous text messages.
