Pregnant rape victim beheads rapist, leaves head in village square
(KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A rape victim in Turkey awaits trial as she shot and decapitated her rapist and left his head in her village square, according to news reports.
Nevin Yildirim, 26, was raped multiple times by distant relative Nurettin Gider, 35, over a period of eight months after her husband left for work in another town in January. Gider allegedly blackmailed her with nude photos he had taken of her after sneaking into her bedroom at night. He also threatened to kill her two children, aged 2 and 6, if she did not cooperate.
After multiple rapes, on Aug 28, Yildirim shot Gider as he was climbing up the back wall of her house to sneak in. He reached for his gun, but she shot him against in his groin area. She shot him ten times in total and stabbed him once in the abdomen. She then cut off his head and carried it to the village square at Yalvac, south-west Turkey.
She told onlookers, "Don't talk behind my back, don't play with my honour. Here is the head of the man who played with my honour."
