October 25 , 2014
A 26-year-old woman in Iran has been executed for killing a man. Reyhaneh Jabbari, who was hanged on Saturday, had claimed that the man had tried to sexually abuse her.
Iran went ahead with the execution despite an international campaign to save her.
Jabbari was on death row for five years for stabbing Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi. According to various international human right groups, who had called for a re-trial, she was pressurized to confess.
