I don't know if you have been following the story of Nazanin Fatehi, but it's the iranian girl who when she was 17 had 3 men try to rape her and her 16 year old cousin, so she ended up stabbing and killing one of them in self defense. The Iranian courts, however, didn;t see it this way, and sentenced her to death by hanging. An international campaign to save her life was launched, with more than 330,000 signatures on her online petition alone, and it seems to have finally bore fruit: The court of appeals has exonerated the now 18 year old girl, altough they are demanding that she pays the family of her killer blood money, because apparently killing has was an excessive form of self defense for trying to rape her*. Annoying till the end those iranian judges seem, but nevertheless, the girl is no longer getting hanged nor charged with anything, and if that's not good news, I don't know what is.
* If a girl is raped in Iran, she needs to come up with witnesses that testify that the sex wasn't consentual. Otherwise, she would be just testifying that she had extra-marital sex with a male, and she would be punished and flogged for it. Nice, huh? Yay for Islamic Sharia courts!
