A 12-year-old Yemeni girl, who was forced into marriage, has died during a difficult delivery in which her baby also died.

"The child, Fawziya Abdullah Youssef, died on Friday September 11 in western Yemen at the age of 12 due to a complicated delivery," said the Yemeni Organisation for Childhood Protection (Seyaj).

The organisation said its volunteers had confirmed that doctors had been unable to save Fawziya's life after she suffered complications from the delivery.

Raised in a poor family with a father suffering from kidney failure, Fawziya was forced to leave school and married off at the age of 11. She became pregnant a year later, Seyaj said.

"The lack of a statutory minimum age for marriage makes it impossible for local officials to ban child marriages, especially among girls, or to punish their parents or spouses for the disastrous consequences of such marriages," Seyaj said, adding that such marriages are widespread on Yemen's Red Sea coast.

"The case of Fawziya illustrates the tragedy of those whom we call 'the brides of death', who are little girls, less than 15 years old, forced into marriage, mostly due to financial reasons," said Ahmed al-Qorashi, the group's director, in an interview with AFP.

He said the proportion of girls and teenage females married before they reach 15 is nearly 50 per cent in rural parts of Yemen, one of the world's poorest countries.

"These marriages are the result of poverty, ignorance and illiteracy, and lead to the destruction of the lives of these young girls, whose opinion is not taken in consideration," Mr Qorashi added.

Last year, a Yemeni court granted a divorce to an eight-year-old girl whose unemployed father forced her into an arranged marriage with a man 20 years her senior, saying he feared she might otherwise be kidnapped by the would-be spouse.

The case of Nojud Mohammed Ali shed light on the suffering of the many adolescent girls forced into marriage.
