Accused Pakistani to see a doctor

August 12, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A U.S. magistrate ordered the federal government to provide a doctor for a Pakistani woman charged with trying to kill U.S. employees in an Afghanistan gunfight.

A frail-looking Aafia Siddiqui sat in a wheelchair as Magistrate Henry Pitman ordered medical care within a day. Siddiqui's lawyers say her health is worsening from wounds suffered in the encounter last month. Her attorney said she may have lost a kidney and suffered brain damage.
