Nasrin and Edreis
born: 1995, 1992
attempted murder: 16 January 2017
Place of residence: Sachsen-Anhalt
Origin: Afghanistan
Children: 1 daughter
Perpetrator: her ex-husband Zeinollah A. (at act 29 y.)
Nasrin is married to Zeinollah at the age of 14 in Iran. They come to Germany with their daughter in 2015 and apply for asylum.

Nasrin emancipates herself and files for divorce. She converts to Christianity and enters into a new relationship with the Afghan interpreter Edreis (25 y.).

On 16 January 2017 Zeinollah meets his ex-wife and her new boyfriend in a regional train at Wolferode station (Sachsen-Anhalt). He stabbed both of them. The forensic medicine counts 33 stings with Edreis. The perpetrator posts the photos on Facebook with the text "I killed the pig". He is arrested in the train.

In May 2017, the trial begins with two attempted murders and serious assault at Halle Regional Court. Nasrin reports of beatings and threats, which Zeinollah also admits. He also says he offered the new friend his sister from Afghanistan as a substitute. He uses the word honour several times. The verdict is not known.
