A Teenager In Sudan Has Been Sentenced To Death For Killing Man Who Raped Her


A 19-year-old woman in Sudan has been sentenced to death for killing the man she was forced to marry, after she says he raped her while his relatives held her down. Hussein was forced to marry Abdulrahman Mohamed Hammad by her father when she was 16 but did not move in with Hammad until April last year. When she refused to have sex with him, three of his relatives held her down while he raped her on May 2nd. The next day, Hammad tried to rape Hussein again, but she escaped to the kitchen and grabbed a knife. In the ensuing struggle, Hammad sustained fatal knife wounds. In a packed courtroom yesterday, in Sudan's second-largest city of Omdurman, Hussein received the death sentence after the family of her dead husband rejected the option of financial compensation and insisted on retribution. Her case has provoked outrage online, and people have been using hashtag JusticeForNoura to raise awareness, while petitions have also been created calling on the Sudanese government to intervene. https://ift.tt/2ItPnnz http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
