Free, But How Long Will He Survive?

Abdul Rahman, an Afghan man threatened with execution because he converted from Islam to Christianity is expected to be released from custody at the end of the day. "The court dismissed today the case against Abdul Rahman for a lack of information and a lot of legal gaps in the case," a court official said. I am glad the US pressured the Afghan government to do this, and I am happy Mr. Rahman will be freed. But, I can only wonder how long he will survive. How long before the Afghan people take matters into their own hands and deal out the justice they believe in?
