New life in Canada awaits Asia Bibi

After a decade of prayer, diplomacy and legal wrangling, a persecuted Christian farmhand and her family is about to start a new life in Canada.

The imminent arrival of Pakistani refugee Asia Bibi — in a case that attracted the attention of two Popes and several government leaders, and led to the assassination of two Pakistani politicians — has been called a great day for religious freedom and justice. After spending eight years on death row on trumped-up blasphemy charges, Bibi will be settled in a secret location in Canada and reunited with her husband and two teenage daughters.
