Abdul Rahman – what happened to him?

He was released after being declared “mentally unfit” – but his family (the ones who turned him in to begin with) were there when he was freed, and now no one knows where he is:

KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan man who had faced the death penalty for converting from Islam to Christianity quickly vanished Tuesday after he was released from prison, apparently out of fear for his life with Muslim clerics still demanding his death.


“We released him last night because the prosecutors told us to,” he [Justice Minister Mohammed Sarwar Danish] said. “His family was there when he was freed, but I don’t know where he was taken.

The article is confusing because on one hand it says he “vanished” out of fear for his life but later the quote from the Justice Minister notes his family was there and that he doesn’t know where he was “taken.” If he was taken, he didn’t leave on his own.

Michelle Malkin has blogged about this today and I agree with her – the fact that nobody knows what’s happened to him is not a good sign.

Stay tuned.
