Imam Held In Pakistan Blasphemy Case

Police in Pakistan have arrested an imam accused of planting burnt pages of the Koran on a Christian girl accused of blasphemy, officials say.

The girl was detained two weeks ago after a mob accused her of desecrating the Koran.

However, a witness at the same mosque as the imam says that he fabricated the evidence, local media reports say.

The case of the girl, named as Rimsha, who is said to be about 14, has sparked international condemnation.
