Iran hangs woman for killing alleged rapist

A picture taken on July 8, 2007 shows Iranian Reyhaneh Jabbari standing handcuffed at police headquarters in Tehran after she was arrested for the murder of a former intelligence official. Jabbari who is awaiting an impending death sentence for slaying of former intelligence official Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, could be forgiven if "she tells the truth", the victim's son said on April 19, 2014 as a UN human rights monitor claims the crime was done in self-defence against a potential rapist.
