|Man in a Desert||
A schoolgirl blogger has been jailed by a Syrian court for 5 years after being convicted of "divulging information to a foreign country [US]."
19-year-old Tal al-Mallohi was arrested in 2009. She was brought to special state security court in Damascus yesterday "chained and blindfolded under heavy security."
This is her blog, in Arabic.
I hope she receives a presidential pardon sooner rather than later.
A man on a long journey through a perpetual desert.
