(edited) or not. Doesn't look like this story panned out, so they didn't follow Muhammad's lead of marrying 9 year old girls after all. [t previously said, "if marrying childbrides is against Islam. It's so odd, though, they don't look scared."] Thanks to a good messageboard vetting, it does look like these are not the brides. Even though the Al-Jazeera video about it sure spotlights a young girl dressed up as the bride and never shows anyone else.
