Eman al-Obeidy, who got the world’s attention when she ran into a Tripoli hotel and accused Gaddafi’s forces of detaining and raping her, has made her way to the United States.
After spending 54 days in a U.N. Refugee facility in Romania, Obeidy arrived in New York before going on to her final destination. Other than telling a CNN producer that she wanted to thank Hillary Clinton, Obeidy said she is not ready to speak to the media.
After being dragged from the Tripoli hotel in March, Obeidy escaped to Tunisia with the help of a defecting army officer, and then moved to Qatar. But she was deported and sent back to Libya shortly thereafter.
