In a tragic incident in Qaemiyeh, Fars province, western Iran, 17-year-old Noushin Mortazavi, also known as Nazanin, was brutally murdered by her 41-year-old uncle on July 15, 2023. The perpetrator, a military man, suffocated Noushin and mutilated her face in an attempt to hinder identification. Subsequently, he buried her in the Qaemiyeh area.
