To Prime Minister Erdoğan and the government of Turkey:

With appreciation for your role in freeing other hostages taken in Libya, we urge you to use all diplomatic means to assist in ensuring the safety and release of Iman al-Obeidi and encouraging the full investigation of her rape and abuse.

Iman is reportedly no longer in government custody, but her security remains at risk. Public pressure saved her life -- now let's make sure she gets back safely to her family.

Last Saturday, a young woman lawyer named Iman al-Obeidi burst into a Tripoli hotel and pleaded with foreign journalists for help, showing bruises and crying that she had just been gang-raped by 15 of Qaddafi's men. She screamed as she was dragged away by Libyan agents and has not been seen since.

Words cannot express the courage Iman showed in speaking out -- and we can only imagine the terror she must be facing right now in the hands of Qaddafi's infamous thugs. Her life is in danger, but we can help, if we act fast.  

Qaddafi will ignore most international outrage, but he listened to the Turkish government when they asked him to release foreign journalists. Let's urgently raise a massive global call to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan to help save Iman -- sign the petition and forward this email to everyone - it will be hand-delivered to the Turkish consulate in Benghazi, and through ads in Turkey, as soon as we reach 500,000 signatures:
