Nigeria

Leah Sharibu.

In October Boko Haram killed a Muslim aid worker, Hauwa Leman and announced that it would keep kidnapped school girl Leah Sharibu and a Christian nurse, Alice Ngaddah, as "slaves for life".

Leah Sharibu.

Pakistan

Asia.

Pakistan's Supreme Court met Monday 8th October and on 31st October 2018, the Supreme Court of Pakistan acquitted her.
On 2 November 2018 however, the Government of Pakistan signed an agreement with the Tehreek-e-Labbaik political party (TLP), which was leading the protests against the verdict; this agreement barred Asia Bibi from leaving the country.
On 7th November 2018, Asia Bibi was released from the Jail for Women in Multan and flown to Islamabad, capital of Pakistan, where she is being held under heavy security.
She will not be allowed to leave Pakistan until the verdict has been reviewed, a process that can take years.
Meanwhile it is reported that Muslim extremists were going house to house in the neighbourhood where Asia's family lived, trying to find and kill them.
