A man who blinded a woman with acid after she spurned his marriage proposals will also be blinded with acid, ruled a court in Iran.
An Iranian newspaper reported the ruling on Thursday.
The Islamic Sharia code of qias or equivalence makes the punishment legal by allowing retribution for violent crimes.
The attacker, 27-year-old Majid Movahedi, will also have to pay compensation to the victim.
Ameneh Bahrami was attacked in 2004 and went to Spain for surgery in order to reconstruct her face. However efforts to restore her sight failed.
The ruling was a response to her plea to the court in the Iranian capital Tehran for retribution.
“Ever since I was subject to acid being thrown on my face, I have a constant feeling of being in danger”, she told the court.
Mr Movahedi had also threatened to kill her, she said.
