In this Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2011 file photo, 15-year-old Sahar Gul, is wheeled into a hospital in Baghlan north of Kabul, Afghanistan. According to officials in northeastern Baghlan province, Gul's in-laws kept her in a basement for six months, ripped her fingernails out, tortured her with hot irons and broke her fingers _ all in an attempt to force her into prostitution. Police freed her last week after her uncle called authorities. Horrific images of Sahar, bruised and bloodied, captured on video, transfixed Afghanistan and set off a storm of condemnation. President Hamid Karzai set up a commission to investigate, and his health minister visited her bedside at a Kabul hospital. The in-laws have been arrested _ they deny abusing her _ and a warrant has been issued for her husband, who serves in the Afghan army. (AP Photo/Jawed Basharat, File)
