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.’
Horrific: The pregnant rape victim left her attacker’s severed head in the centre of the Turkish town of Yalvac
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.
The woman has reportedly even said she is prepared to die as long as she is allowed to have the abortion.
The rapist had taken nude photos of her and threatened to send them to her parents unless she continued sleeping with him.
She took a gun and shot him ten times, several times in his private parts, before cutting off his head and hurling it into the village square at Yalvac.
The man was also reportedly stabbed in the abdomen after he was shot.
‘He kept saying that he would tell everyone about the rape,’ she reportedly said during her testimony. ‘My daughter will start school this year.
‘Everyone would have insulted my children. Now no one can. I saved my honour,’ she added.
‘They will now call children the kids of the women who saved her honor.’
