Iran's Child Offenders On Death Row

On May 1, Iran executed a 23-year-old woman, Delara Darabi, for a crime committed when she was a minor. Darabi is one of scores of juvenile offenders facing execution in the Islamic Republic. RFE/RL's Radio Farda has been provided with a video that documents the suffering of Iran’s child offenders, co-produced by one of Iran’s leading advocates against child execution, Mohammad Mostafaei. In this edited version of the video, the filmmakers talk to juvenile offenders on death row, as their parents and advocates frantically beg the victims' family for forgiveness, the only way their lives can be spared.
