A pregnant rape victim in Turkey shot and decapitated her attacker then left his severed head in the square of her local village.
The woman, five months pregnant, is demanding authorities let her have an abortion even though she is way beyond the ten week limit allowed for terminations in Turkey.
When police arrested her near to the severed head she said; ‘That is the head of one who toyed with my honour.’

Womens’ groups in Turkey have praised her as a heroine. It turned out that the woman, aged 26 and a mother-of-two, had been abused by her attacker for months before she took her revenge and was being blackmailed.
