The child bride had her ears cut off by her husband after he accused her of talking to other men.

Zarina of Afghanistan, who got married when she was just 13 years old, said that her husband fled and went into hiding after attacking her.

She said that one say, she and her husband were sleeping in their house in Balkh, when he woke up and suddenly attacked her. He tied her up so she cannot resist him and he cut off both of her ears.

Zarina said that she has no idea why her husband did this to her as she never spoke to other men.

Zarina said that her husband had tried to prevent her from visiting her parents because he thought that she used them as an excuse to go out to see other men.

Hospital spokesman Noor Mohammad Faiz said that when Zarina was brought to the hospital in Mazar-e-Sharif, she was in critical condition after having lost a lot of blood.
