An Iranian woman sentenced to the death penalty for killing a man she said was trying to rape her has been executed despite international calls to spare her life.
Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, was hanged for premeditated murder this morning, the official IRNA news agency said today.
A court previously rejected her defence that Mr Sarbandi was trying to rape her when she killed him.
Ms Jabbari was hanged by the state after Mr Sarbandi's family refused to pardon her or accept blood money.
