Afghan Girl Pleads Guilty To Being in Pakistan Illegally

2016-11-04 15:38:32

The "Afghan Girl" from the famous National Geographic cover has pleaded guilty to falsifying documents and illegally staying in Pakistan. Sharbat Gula, who is now in her 40s, was sentenced to 15 days in jail and fined, according to her lawyer Mohsin Darwar. She has already spent 11 days in jail and will be deported upon fulfilling the remainder of her sentence. Gila face became known around the world, when photographer Steve McCurry captured his iconic image of 120year-old face, living in a refugee camp for Afghan nationals in Peshawar, Pakistan. The International Organization for Migration, which assists undocumented migrants, says the arrest showcases of mounting pressure on Afghan refugees in Pakistan to return home.
