[update] Es werden Zweifel an der Identität Aminas laut, vom Wall Street Journal: Photos of Syrian-American Blogger Called into Question: „A London publicist said Wednesday that the photos circulating on the Web and in the media show someone else entirely. The photos are of Jelena Lecic, who lives in London, according to publicist, Julius Just.“ Ich lasse das Posting erstmal so, wie es ist, sollte sich die ganze Story als Fake erweisen, mache ich nochmal was dazu.

----------------------------

Im April machte ein Posting einer lesbischen Bloggerin aus Syrien die Runde, die von Milizen „abgeholt“ werden sollte und deren Vater es schaffte, sie mit den richtigen Worten da rauszuboxen. Gestern Nacht wurde sie nun entführt.

Amina was seized by three men in their early 20’s. According to the witness (who does not want her identity known), the men were armed. Amina hit one of them and told the friend to go find her father.

One of the men then put his hand over Amina’s mouth and they hustled her into a red Dacia Logan with a window sticker of Basel Assad. The witness did not get the tag number. She promptly went and found Amina’s father.

Aus einem Update auf ihrem Blog (geschrieben von ihrer Cousine):

I have been on the telephone with both her parents and all that we can say right now is that she is missing. Her father is desperately trying to find out where she is and who has taken her.

Unfortunately, there are at least 18 different police formations in Syria as well as multiple different party militias and gangs. We do not know who took her so we do not know who to ask to get her back. It is possible that they are forcibly deporting her.

From other family members who have been imprisoned there, we believe that she is likely to be released fairly soon. If they wanted to kill her, they would have done so.
