An eye for an eye: Iran sentences 27-year-old to have eyes GOUGED OUT

A man has been sentenced to have his eyes gouged out in Iran after damaging the sight of a man during a street fight, it has been reported.

The horrifying ‘eye for an eye’ sentence was handed down to a 27-year-old man, referred to only by his first name, Hamed.

It is punishment for unintentionally injuring a man’s eye during a brawl in March 2011, when he was just 23 years old.
