They will get Gillian Gibbons out of the country at once before the crazed lynch mobs get their hands on her. The jailed "teddy bear teacher" is the target of heavily armed mobs who are demanding her execution over a freaking teddy bear.
Thousands of Islamic fanatics wielding clubs and knives are marching through the streets of Khartoum demanding the execution of teddy bear teacher Gillian Gibbons.
As the mother-of-two started a 15-day prison term, protestors left mosques across the Sudanese capital to denounce the "lenient verdict" and call for the death penalty.
The mob descended on Martyrs Square, which is in front of the presidential palace, many arriving in pick-up trucks with loudspeakers blaring messages condemning Miss Gibbons.
Hundreds of riot police had been deployed but they made no attempt to disrupt the rally.
"Shame, shame on the U.K.," protesters chanted," as they called for Gibbons' execution, saying, "No tolerance: Execution," and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad."
The Daily Mail has an on-line petition asking that the authorities free her. (Earlier post is here.) Sudan already has enough of an international incident on its hands. It does not need the lynching of a 52-year old teacher as well. Frankly, I don't understand why people go to work in countries like this. There have been too many cases like this and the trend is getting worse.
