Nazanin Fatehi Freed From Iranian Prison

Via CTV:

A young Iranian woman who faced the death penalty for killing a man who attempted to rape her is out of jail.

Nazanin Fatehi, 19, was released Wednesday following an international campaign spearheaded by a former Miss World Canada.

Fatehi was reunited with her family in Tehran a few days after posting bail of just over $50,000.
