Libyan woman alleging rape arrives in US
Bucharest - A Libyan woman who accused soldiers loyal to Muammar Gaddafi of raping her arrived to the United States after living for almost two months in a refugee centre in Romania, a UN official said on Friday.
"She arrived to the United States" after leaving Romania on Wednesday morning, Claudia Liute, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Romania, told AFP.
She declined giving further details on Iman Al-Obeidi's location and condition.
Al-Obeidi, 29, attracted international media attention when she stormed into the Rixos hotel in Tripoli on March 26 and threw open her coat to reveal scars and bruises on her body.
She accused forces loyal to Gaddafi of abusing her after she was stopped at a checkpoint in Tripoli.
The woman had come to the emergency refugee transit centre at Timisoara, western Romania, on June 06. The unit hosts refugees pending their relocation to third countries.
