    Last week, Pakistan's highest court acquitted five of the six men accused of gang-raping Mukhtar Mai, citing lack of evidence. 

    Elders in her village in Punjab province ordered the assault as punishment for her brother's alleged illicit relationship with a woman.

    But Mukhtar Mai, discussing how she feels about the court decision, tells Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab she will continue to fight for justice.
