Catalonia: Imam suspected of enocuraging early marriages

The prosecution in Lleida (Catalonia) is investigating a suspicion that the imam of Tàrrega, Saiba Safi, tried to convince parents of Muslim girls that they should leave school at 16 in order to get married. The prosecution says it's unclear whether a crime has been committed.

Safi, who fled to Morocco, used to teach 10-14 year olds in the local mosque, and is also accused of relegating the girls to the back and ignoring them.
