12-Year-Old Yemeni Bride Dies of Internal Bleeding

Every so often, I come across a story that simply breaks my heart.  Last fall, it was the death in childbirth of a 12-year-old girl who had been forced, because of her family's financial hardship, to drop out of school and marry a man twice her age.  She died of severe bleeding after a three-day labor, and her baby also died.
