Iranian child bride set for execution for killing abusive husband

An Iranian child bride, identified as Zeinab Sokian could be hanged in couple of weeks after she was sentenced to death for allegedly murdering her abusive husband. Zeinab, who was only 15 when she got married, was sentenced to death for the 2012 murder of her husband, when she was just 17.


While in jail, she married another prisoner and fell pregnant, and as Iranian law prevents pregnant women from being executed, her death sentence was delayed. However, she gave birth to a stillborn child on Friday, September 30, 2016 in Euromieh central prison, meaning she could possibly be put to death within weeks.
