So today the Sydney Morning Herald ran a piece with the title of Ten-year-old granted divorce from abusive marriage which they had taken from the L A Times. Mostly the information seemed accurate (well, except for the age of the girl and one or two other things). The silliest was that this is old news. It was reported in the Arab News and the Yemen Times (and I think the Australian Press as well) back on the 18th of April 2008 – nearly two full months ago. I even mentioned it in Eight Year Old Girl’s Divorce Is Finalised
Well done SMH – take it from the L A Times … but two months late! Even the L A Times published the story back on 11 April 2008.
