born: 1998
attempted murder: 17 November 2015
Residence: Bad Endorf / Munich
Origin: Afghanistan
Children: 1 daughter (8 months)
Perpetrator: her "husband" Suliman N. (21 years)
In a mosque in Munich Amina was married at the age of 16 to Suliman, who is 4 years older. However, they are only married for Islam by an Imam, which is not recognised in Germany. Who is the driving force behind the marriage to a minor is unclear. It could be Amina's family. It could be that Suliman hopes for a German passport and a residence permit. But it could also be that Amina was in love.

Suliman lives in a refugee house in Bad Endorf, Bavaria. He wants to legalize the marriage in Germany. But Amina refuses. There is talk of domestic violence and death threats. The mother flees with the 8-month-old baby to a women's shelter in Munich.

This is where Suliman ambushed her in November 2015 and stabbed her 15 times in the street with a corkscrew. Next to her is the pram with her daughter. Amina is covered with cuts. Passers-by intervene.

The trial for attempted manslaughter starts in August 2016 at the Munich District Court. Suliman says he doesn't remember anything. At the end of August, he was sentenced to 5 years and 9 months in prison for attempted manslaughter and bodily harm.

The name Amina is mentioned in the newspaper.
