An Iranian girl forced into an abusive marriage at the age of 14 now faces imminent execution for killing her husband while she was still a child, two international human rights groups warned this week. Iran still holds the horrific world record of the "country with the world’s highest number of child executions," according to Human Rights Watch. Only Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Hamas authorities in Gaza also executed child offenders in the last five years, the group says. International law prohibits executing people who commit crimes when they are under 18.
