The full wrath of the law has fallen on a man who was convicted of raping and murdering a six-year-old Afghan girl.

Setayesh Ghoreyshi was kidnapped in April 2016 in the town of Varamin, just south of Tehran and murdered by Amirhossein P., who was 17 years old at the time.

“The family of the victim insisted on applying the penalty which took place this morning,” said Gholamhossein Esmaili, judiciary chief for Tehran province.
