Italy said on Tuesday it will help a Pakistani Christian woman leave her country because her life is in danger following charges of blasphemy against Islam that put her on death row for eight years.

Authorities have indicated they will bar Bibi from travelling abroad. The World is One News, WION examines global issues with in-depth analysis. We provide much more than the news of the day.
