Romina Ashrafi

A 13-year-old Iranian girl was beheaded by her father in an “honor killing” while she was fast asleep, prompting a national outcry, according to reports.

Romina Ashrafi was killed Thursday by Reza Ashraf as punishment for running away with a 34-year-old man from her home in Talesh, Iran International TV reported.

The teen fell in love with the older man, Bahamn Khavari, in her hometown, but her father opposed their relationship and she eloped with him, the outlet reported.

Both of their families called on authorities to have them brought home, despite the teen warning that would put her life in danger, according to the report.
