A Pakistani Christian woman accused of blaspheming against Islam and condemned to death has collaborated with a French journalist to tell her story, reports Zenit.

The plight of Asia Bibi has brought international attention, with even Pope Benedict speaking out on her behalf.

With journalist Anne Isabelle Tollet, Bibi has authored "Blasphème" (Blasphemy), which was released this week in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need, which collaborated in the publication, described the book as "an impressive account of this Pakistani who for two years has awaited the order to be hanged, simply for having dared to share a glass of water with other women."
