A Christian girl accused of blasphemy in Pakistan was released from jail on Saturday, a minister said, in a case that has sparked an international outcry.

Rimsha Masih was arrested on August 16 for allegedly burning pages containing verses from the Koran but she was released from a prison in Rawalpindi after a court on Friday accepted her bail application.
