Stolen Brides

This is a documentary I watched with my boyfriend last month, where we were in Italy for Christmas. Unfortunately it cannot be found on BBC iPlayer, but I found it on You Tube, divided into some episodes (just follow the progression).

Reporter Lucy Ash traveled to Chechnya to investigate the “bride stealing” tradition. Young women are kidnapped on the street and obliged to get married to their kidnapper, after the approval of the family.
