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.<p>The court, however, issued on Tuesday a sentence for Nazanin to be hanged to death.<p>Last week, a court in the city of Rasht, northern Iran, sentenced Delara Darabi to death by hanging. She was charged with murder when she was 17 years old. Darabi has denied the charges. <p>In August 2004, Iran’s 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”.<p>The teenage victim had no access to a lawyer at any stage and efforts by her family to retain one were to no avail. Atefeh personally defended herself and told the religious judge that he should punish those who force women into adultery, not the victims. She was eventually hanged in public in the northern town of Neka.<br></I>

MAx...you are SOOOO dead on target!<p>Simply stated......the middle east has been the geographic location of thousands of years of continued fighting...between various nations and religious groups...it IS their culture. Conquer and dominate! It is all they know. The only way there will be any change is if the younger generations get some "world education" as to how best get their repsective countries to "fit in". <br>That is an area where the UN/EU/US can have some positive input......however, what is happeneing is that the radical arm of Islam is getting to them before we do! AND this GROSS injustice is just another in a long line of examples of what kind of "CULTURE' we are really fighting!<p>VERY SAD <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
