Hammurabi, the Revenge

A woman blinded by a deranged suitor in an acid attack wants her attacker blinded also. And in Iran, you can apparently do that sort of thing.

I find this story fascinating, because Iran is usually criticized for giving women too few rights. This time, it's arguably giving them too many.
