"Freedom's painful price"

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Mon. 28/03/11, As rebels advance on Gaddafi’s turf in Libya, several papers focus on the plight of women in the Middle East uprisings. The Independent’s Donald Macintyre was in the Rixos hotel in Tripoli when a woman barged into a room full of journalists screaming that she had been raped by Gaddafi loyalists. She was then dragged away from the sight of the press. Meanwhile Nicholas Kristof tells the story of women protesters in Egypt, subjected to “virginity exams”.
