TUNIS, Tunisia —

The young woman who scandalized Tunisia by posting topless photos of herself as a form of feminist protest says she has reconciled with her family.

Amina Tyler, 19, posted Facebook photos with the words "my body belongs to me" scrawled across her naked chest and was later spirited away by her family to a small village after religious hardliners issued death threats against her.

Last week, Tyler said she had escaped from her family after she was drugged, held against her will and subject to virginity tests.

On Monday, she told The Associated Press she had been in contact with them and they sent her passport to her so she could get it renewed and leave.

Tyler said she plans to get a visa to France and take up journalism studies.
