With friends like these..

Pakistan's "President" General Musharraf said today that women in that country were willing to get raped in order to gain asylum in foreign countries.

“You must understand the environment in Pakistan,” Mr Musharraf told the paper. “This has become a money-making concern. A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself raped.”

This story is reported by AFP and The Times in London and a few other places, though I cannot locate the Washington Post story.
