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.
