(Worthy News) - Pakistan's authorities have struck a deal with a hard-line Islamist party to end a protest over the acquittal of a Christian woman convicted of blasphemy.
As part of the deal, proceedings will begin to bar Asia Bibi from leaving the country.
The government will also not prevent protesters legally challenging the Supreme Court decision to release her.
Asia Bibi was convicted in 2010 of insulting the Prophet Muhammad, but was acquitted earlier this week. [ Source: BBC (Read More...) ]
