Radio Mashaal, RFE/RL's Pakistan Service, first broke the story of little Bibi Roza, a 6-year-old girl living in Pakistan's Swat Valley who was being married off to satisfy a tribal feud. Shortly after the report by Niaz Ahmad Khan and Frud Bezhan -- and just days before the wedding was to take place -- authorities intervened and arrested those involved with organizing the marriage.
Read how the story unfolded and see exclusive interviews with Bibi's family at "Last-Minute Reprieve For Pakistani Child Bride."
