Eye for an eye for Iran man who blinded toddler
Iran blinded a man after convicting him of throwing chemicals in the face of a four-year-old girl and depriving her of sight, a judicial official said. It was the second time this year that Iran had carried out the strict eye-for-eye punishment. The man had thrown chemicals into the face of the little girl, leaving her blind. The law of retribution is a central part of Islam’s sharia code but has been condemned by international human rights groups. Victims can choose to spare their attackers the punishment often in exchange for blood money.
