A Sudanese girl, Noura Hussein, has been sentenced to death by hanging for stabbing a husband who tried to rape her.

The verdict was given by a judge in Omdurman after the family members of the deceased had refused a compensation, the BBC mentioned in a report.

On Twitter, a campaign, #JusticeforNoura has been trending.

 

It is considered one of the responses given by human rights group calling for a reversal of the sentencing announced on Thursday, May 10, 2018, according to the BBC.

Noura Hussein was reportedly forced into marriage when she was 16 years old. The death verdict if enforced will have obstructed her plans to train as a teacher.
