A harrowing video has been uploaded online by an 11-year-old Yemeni girl who claims that she ran away to escape an arranged marriage. Nada al-Ahdal says she was only saved from the forced engagement after her uncle intervened. 'Go ahead and marry me off - I'll kill myself,' she warns in the video, dated July 8, and posted on YouTube. 'Don't they have any compassion?' I'm better off dead. I'd rather die.' The schoolgirl. one of eight children, was taken in by her uncle Abdel Salam al-Ahdal, when she was aged three. But when a Yemeni expatriate living in Saudi Arabia asked her parents if he could marry her, they readily agreed. Nada's uncle was horrified when he come to know about this, he informed authorities and Nada was eventually allowed to live with her uncle. Its then when she posted this video online. In an interview with National Yemen, Nada accuses her mother of arranging the marriage for profit. 'But I'm not an item for sale,' she says. 'I'm a human being and I would rather die than get married at this age.'
