Nurta Mohamed Farah of Bardher, in southern Somalia, has been confined to her home since May 10, when her family found out that she had converted to Christianity from Islam.
A doctor assumed that she had gone crazy for leaving Islam and prescribed medication which her parents forced upon her. When the medication and the beatings failed to shake her faith, her parents began chaining her to the tree and locking her into a small dark room at night.
A Christian leader in the area said that she is very sick and undergoing intense suffering.
