Skip to comments.Iran to hang teenage girl attacked by rapists

An Iranian court has sentenced a teenage rape victim to death by hanging after she weepingly confessed that she had unintentionally killed a man who had tried to rape both her and her niece.
The state-run daily Etemaad reported on Saturday that 18-year-old Nazanin confessed to stabbing one of three men who had attacked the pair along with their boyfriends while they were spending some time in a park west of the Iranian capital in March 2005.
She described how the three men pushed her and her 16-year-old niece Somayeh onto the ground and tried to rape them, and said that she took out a knife from her pocket and stabbed one of the men in the hand.
As the girls tried to escape, the men once again attacked them, and at this point, Nazanin said, she stabbed one of the men in the chest. The teenage girl, however, broke down in tears in court as she explained that she had no intention of killing the man but was merely defending herself and her younger niece from rape, the report said.
The court, however, issued on Tuesday a sentence for Nazanin to be hanged to death.
Last week, a court in the city of Rasht, northern Iran, sentenced Delara Darabi to death by hanging charged with murder when she was 17 years old. Darabi has denied the charges.
In August 2004, Irans Islamic penal system sentenced a 16-year-old girl, Atefeh Rajabi, to death after a sham trial, in which she was accused of committing acts incompatible with chastity.
The teenage victim had no access to a lawyer at any stage and efforts by her family to retain one were to no avail. She was eventually hanged in public in the northern town of Neka.

Religion of Peace my ass.
You would think that the NOW gang would be demanding we invade Iran.
And Europe preaches about tollerance. We ought to bomb Iran and throw every Euro-weanie in prison for stalling on action as these crimes take place.
War is the only solution.
Only animals would sentence a woman to death for killing a rapist. Actually that's wrong, animals would cheer her on. Sub-human monsters would sentence a woman to death for killing a rapist.
The silence is deafening.
Such a noble people. Surely we can trust them with nukes, right?
Oddly enough except for the death penalty this would jive with liberal beliefs on "escalation of violence". The belief that killing someone who isn't trying to kill you is a crime seperate from their actions.
All we need is some bullshit from you to put the cherry on top!
Can you be a Christian and not see Satan's face leering at you in practically everything they do?
These kind of actions taken by the government of Iran come as no surprise.
If I were her, I would have done the same thing. What she did was self defense.
Sounds more like a stoning offense....NOT.
and the NOW organization will speak up?
"An Iranian court has sentenced a teenage rape victim to death by hanging..."
We should expect anything else? Animals.
This is a terrible tragedy and great injustice. Fortunately though is while Iran has no credible system of justice, God does and always will and all those in Iran responsible for this will face God.
Soon to be seen in your local Muslim enclave here in the US Oh BTW what is CAIR's or our moderate Muslim friends outrage over this?
She did that in self defense. Normally, I am against capital punishment but after seeing crap like this, I think those Iranian judges ought to be hanged. Somebody needs to take out these idiots, hopefully it will be the US or Israel.
