Lubna, 24, was a university student studying English at Damascus University when the war started. Last year she was travelling in a bus that was attacked by the Syrian Army. Many on the bus were killed and Lubna herself was left gravely injured and bleeding from a bullet wound in her back. When others tried to reach the bus they were shot and killed by a sniper. It was three hours before help finally reached Lubna, and she was taken to a government hosptial. She was told she would be unable to walk again.Hearing that the Syrian Army were killing some of the patients at the government hospital, her family got her across the border to a hospital in Jordan. Her husband, a policeman, threatened to divorce her if she did not return to Syria within two days; despite her being in hospital and the threat to her life if she returned.
