    A Christian girl held on blasphemy charges has been bailed by a court in Islamabad.

    Rimsha, 14, was arrested three weeks ago after an angry mob accused her of burning pages of the Koran. Last week an imam was taken into custody suspected of planting the burned pages of the Koran in her bag.
