Jordan’s dark secret

Australian current affairs journalism at its finest, from last night’s SBS Dateline:

Video Journalist Yaara Bou Melhem meets Rita*, who has spent the past 14 years in Jordan’s Al Jweidah jail. She also meets Sophia*, who’s spent the past 15 years of her life behind bars. Both girls were ordered there by the state – to prevent their families from killing them.
