Don't do it, Ameneh !

Ameneh Bahrami is an Iranian woman blinded and badly disfigured in an acid attack by a fellow student at Tehran university in October 2004, after she had rejected his romantic advances. In the following trial she informed the court that she desired "to inflict the same life on him that he inflicted on me". In February 2009, the criminal court ordered qisas (retaliation) on her attacker and entitled her to blind him with acid as well. This sentence was reportedly set to be carried out on Saturday the 14th May 2011; it was postponed at the 11th hour on Saturday, the ISNA news agency reported.
