Iman al-Obeidi , the Libyan woman who claimed that members of the security forces of the Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, raped her, and her story  received wide media attention, said that she was beaten in Qatar. She has been handcuffed, and forced to board a plane.

She added that the Qataris confiscated all her belongings and  her and her parents’, including their mobile phones, laptops, and some of their money and that she contacted CNN and told them what has happened to her.

Obeidi, accused the Transitional National Assembly of exploiting her, but the latter denied her accusations. It has been said that her presence in Qatar seems to embarrass the Libyan Transitional Council.

News circulated earlier said that she was deported, along with her parents from Qatar to the Libyan opposition stronghold of the city of Benghazi. And that al-Obeidi was waiting to get the status of refugee in Qatar and that the UNHCR was still preparing her documents to transfer her from Qatar  to start a new life somewhere else, but the Qatari national authorities took her and her parents from the hotel in Doha and forced them to board a military plane and they left Qatar yesterday, Thursday, 2d of June.
