Noura Hussein says her father made her contractually marry her cousin when she was 16, but she refused to accept the union and sought refuge with a relative for three years.

She is said to have wanted to finish her education and train as a teacher.

The next day, when the couple was alone, the man tried again to rape Nura, however, she, defending herself, grabbed a knife and killed the tyrant.

Thereafter, she went home after she was deceived that the wedding had been cancelled.

It was a trap.

After Hussein refused to consummate the marriage, her husband's relatives held her down while he raped her.

This is horrific. A teen girl has been sentenced to death by hanging after the man she was forced to marry at 15 raped her and she stabbed him in self-defense.

.

Late last month, Hussein was found guilty of premeditated murder.

Noura's legal team according to reports have 15 days to appeal the death sentence.

And going into the playoffs we felt like we had a really good chance, especially after winning 16 in a row (to close the regular season).

The terrified young woman has support from hundreds of protesters. Hussein's case had changed that, he said.

"Noura Hussein is a victim and the sentence against her is an intolerable act of cruelty", Seif Magango, Amnesty International's Deputy Regional Director for East Africa, the Horn and the Great Lakes, wrote in a statement. She said that while the rape and harassment of women had always been an issue in Sudan, a case like Hussein's had never gone viral. After that she tried to hide from their parents, but they said it to the police.

Concise News learnt that the legal age for marriage in Sudan is 10. The man's family Nury requires that the death sentence was carried out. The whole family has to agree on the punishment, Salah said.

Now she awaits the death penalty.

Randa Elzein tweeted "I was never sadder and more shaken than when i saw Noura today".

The court is full. Al-Imam volunteered to represent the teen after her original lawyer took themselves off the case.

The petition helps get the attention of media, as well as global (human rights) organizations.

Campaign groups such as Equality Now say they are writing to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to plead for clemency, arguing that the judgement is against the Sudanese constitution.

Supporters of Hussein flocked to the Criminal Court in Omdurman, Sudan's second-largest city, in protest during the trial. Thousands of people have signed petitions in support of Hussein. "We have to fight for her", said political activist Amjad Fareed in a Facebook post on Saturday.
