Girl, 13, forced to marry disabled groom, 36, so father could take second wife

Saima's father married his underage daughter to 36-year-old Ramzan, in exchange for a second wife who is Ramzan's sister. He hopes she will give him a son. He says he feels no remorse because tradition and faith demands parents marry their daughters, who he calls burdens, soon after they reach puberty. (AP Photo/K.M. Chaudhry)
