Pakistani Activist Gulalai Ismail flees to US
A prominent human rights activist Gulalai Ismail fled from Pakistan to the US after hiding for months. The 33-year-old activist has requested for political asylum in New York, where she is staying with her sister. "The last few months have been awful. I have been threatened, harassed, and I am lucky to be alive," said Gulalai. Gulalai refused to disclose how she left Pak as she was under a travel ban.
